Natural Birth, New Age, and the Christian Mom’s Response

Natural Birth, New Age, and the Christian Mom’s Response

In last week’s posts on reframing our view of labor and things we should stop saying about pregnancy, a few readers misunderstood the meaning of “New Age” and its influence on modern pregnancy culture. New Age philosophy is not another term for modern medical practice.

Natural Birth for the Pain-Intolerant

Natural Birth for the Pain-Intolerant

It started simply as curiosity, but as time went on, I found more and more information touting the benefits of an unmedicated birth: quicker recovery, greater comfort, more presence of mind, awake baby, and many more. This is all great, I thought. But I still have to do it MYSELF.
