Christmas represents special meaning for me because it is the story about a miraculous birth. A first-time pregnant woman name Mary was carrying a special gift to the world and pregnant moms, so are you.
The journey and adversity that a sperm experiences to get to an egg, is humbling.
Scientific literature says that fifty percent of pregnancies are “unintended” or an “accident”, but I beg to differ. There are no “accidents” in the mind of God. Each one of us possesses a gift and a purpose that will potentially serve humanity. Some of our greatest gifts came from humble wombs like Mary of Nazareth, whose birth produced The Messiah.
Whether you celebrate Christmas or not is irrelevant to the fact that like Mary, you are carrying a miracle so please treat your pregnancy as such, whether it’s your first or your fifth. The miracle of life that lies within your womb is God’s gift. Cherish that gift. Nourish that gift and above all, protect that gift. If you have questions about your pregnancy, do not be afraid to ask. If you have concerns about your pregnancy, express them. When your physician or midwife gives you advice abut your pregnancy, please follow it.
What every pregnant woman needs to know about Christmas is that it represents a special birthday and the birth of your unborn child is just as special. “Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb.” May each of you celebrate your own divinity and the divinity of your unborn child.
I wish each of you a healthy, joyous pregnancy in this beautiful season of Light.
