After three C-sections, Jaimie heard the Lord inviting her to trust Him for a VBAC with her 4th baby. It was a scary and lonely road at times when others didn’t support her or understand, but God was so faithful through it all. He led her step by step, helped her break out of fear and worry, and taught her to stand on His word above all else. 

The journey with God and her beautiful birth story transformed her forever and I pray her story and encouragement transforms you as well!

You can connect with Jaimie on Facebook at A VBAC Mom and her Journey and here are some other resources she recommends:

VBACfacts.com – Empowering, unbiased facts about VBACs that will build your knowledge and help you make the best decision for you and your family. 

ICAN (International Cesarian Awareness Network) – This organization gave Jaimie a list of providers in her area that might support her in a VBAC. They also were a great resource to teach her how to speak to providers. 

Thank you so much Jaimie for sharing your heart and story with us! 

07| Camaiya: Leading Worship Through Active Labor

Podcast | October 22, 2016 | By


Throughout her second pregnancy, the Lord led Camaiya through a process of casting out fear, building her faith for the birth, and writing out her specific desires and prayers for the birth.

Her preparation with the Lord paid off in the beautiful, empowering birth story that followed. She actually led worship at her church through hard active labor and then after arriving to the hospital, the Lord supernaturally dilated her from 5 cm to 10 cm in a few minutes. 

Enjoy her encouraging birth story and the lessons she learned afterwards fighting off postpartum depression and taking each thought captive. 

You can connect with Camaiya on Facebook on her personal page at Camaiya Jackson.

And here are the resources she recommends:

The book Supernatural Childbirth by Jackie Mize.

My Online Kingdom Childbirth Class – the class she took that really  helped her prepare physically, mentally, and spiritually for the wonderful birth she had. 

Praying you’re so blessed by all that Camaiya shared in today’s episode!

To your beautiful birth,


06| Learning to Praise a Baby Into The World

Podcast | October 10, 2016 | By


During her 3rd pregnancy, the Lord told Jessie “I want to teach you to praise a baby into the world.” You will love hearing about the journey that followed and how He led her through this birth!

And then during her 4th pregnancy, the Lord asked her “Will you trust me for a hospital birth this time? That my glory can show up just as strong at the hospital as I did at your home births?” And what an amazing birth it turned out to be – so full of His presence and light as she followed His lead and even prophesied over the nurses and attendants in between contractions.

You will LOVE these birth stories!

So instead of watching a show one evening this week, make a cup of tea and a bag of popcorn and cuddle up to listen and let the Lord minister to your heart – I promise your spirit will be encouraged and you’ll fall asleep smiling :).

05| Jessie: A Birth in God’s Glory

Podcast | September 18, 2016 | By


The words God gave Jessie as she prepared for each of her four births were so unique and beautiful. As she pressed in to what He was speaking to her and followed His lead during each labor, she experienced His presence and glory in amazing ways in each birth.

During her first birth, she really learned to listen to Holy Spirit’s leading and how to relax through contractions with Him. Then during her second birth, she experienced a miraculous, redeemed birth in His glory and presence. Both births ended with a fun surprise that left them laughing and in awe of God’s goodness. 

Enjoy hearing her first two births today and then stay tuned for her second two birth stories next week! Honestly, Jessie has four of the most inspiring birth stories I’ve ever heard. Listening to them will increase your faith, your desire for intimacy with God, and your excitement about birth! 

If you want to connect with Jessie, you can e-mail her at [email protected] and here are some of the resources she recommends:

1. A Heavenly Welcome’s Holy Spirit Labor Relaxation Album – An album that will help you learn how to relax with Holy Spirit during contractions and prepare your body, mind, and spirit for a beautiful birth with God. This album comes as part of our Kingdom Childbirth Class, but you can buy it a la carte at the link above. 

2. Hypnobirth CD’s – Jessie used this cd to practice relaxing her entire body for labor. She just pictured Holy Spirit filling her when the cd talked about warm liquid light filling you. For her, she was able to enter God’s presence through the cd. (It didn’t work as well for me though so that’s why I created the Holy Spirit Labor Relaxation Album listed above).

Podcast | September 12, 2016 | By


Even though the doctors told Elisa she would need to be induced at 36 weeks due to a complication that arose, she entered her birth with peace and excitement knowing that God was still going to show up in it. And He didn’t disappoint her.

He blessed her with a presence-filled, supernaturally fast induction that didn’t even end up requiring Pitocin. Listen to her share about her beautiful journey with Him through the pregnancy and birth and how even though all didn’t go as planned, in the end she wouldn’t trade a single detail of it.

You can connect with Elisa at [email protected] and here are some resources she recommends:

1. A Heavenly Welcome’s online Kingdom Childbirth Class – A birth class that partners the natural and supernatural to break fear and empower you to birth your baby in God’s joy and presence.
