Is the pain of childbirth a necessary evil? Should mothers-to-be feel anxious or scared about having children and starting a family? Christians follow a God who throughout Scripture claims to understand the experience of giving birth—both to believers and to a whole new creation. So shouldn’t Christians have a robust view of how the birth process shapes women and shows us the heart of our Creator? In Holy Labor: How Childbirth Shapes a Woman’s Soul, Aubry G. Smith draws on her own experiences of giving birth and motherhood along with a litany of biblical examples to illustrate how birth can teach us—expectant mothers, mothers, and those who know them—what it means to be created in God’s image. Along the way, she unpacks the many conflicting assumptions held by Christians about the mess and beauty of birth and how it’s portrayed in Scripture. She shows soon-to-be mothers not only how to think biblically about birth, but also walks them through how to put these ideas into practice in their own lives. Smith encourages all readers to see God and the gospel through the miracle of birth.
