Still Giving Birth Like Mary
Religion News Service, December 21, 2017
Marie’s* contractions started early in the morning. As the contractions progressed, she did her best to get comfortable and prepare for her first child. She wished her mother or a midwife were with her, but her mother had trained her how to deliver alone. So many women do that in her country already. She instructed her husband to find cloth to wrap the child in and water to clean both her and the coming child.
