The Curse Of Hebrew Childbirth

Even if you are not a Christian I guess you would have at some point heard people claim the portion  of the Hebrew women in childbirth. "The Hebrew delivery is my portion" " I will deliver like the Hebrew women" etc.

What exactly do we call 'Hebrew Delivery'? Have we totally lost our minds in claiming and hoping for Hebrew Delivery? Few months ago, I had just returned from the hospital where I went for pre-natal check up and was chatting with my cousin. She asked how I was preparing for childbirth and I told her I was ready, next thing she said was " Nonye pls don't let those oyibo people cut you up o!, any small thing they'll do CS. Let me tell you, you will deliver like the Hebrew woman! because you are a daughter of Zion"  As in, for minutes I was staring at my phone like what the heck am I reading?  So if someone gives birth through CS its not Hebrew Delivery and you are not favored? excuse me! what is Episiotomy?? is it not an incision given on the vagina to widen it up for baby to gain enough exit space? Which in most cases is necessary for first childbirth. What happens after Episiotomy? the darn place is stitched back! so cutting and stitching back any part of the body is called what? Surgery! CS = cutting and stitching which is = Surgery!

How many women have died waiting for 'Hebrew Delivery'? Some women during labour are given very valid medical reasons why a CS will be absolutely necessary yet they insist on going vaginal, then something goes wrong with the mother or child and God is questioned! I'm not saying its a bad thing to trust God for vaginal delivery,I mean if that's what you want, by all means pray and trust Him! But if along the way there is a medical reason why you NEED to have your baby through CS, pls don't be stupid! Go ahead and have your child. The bible says God gives wisdom of witty invention, and medical science has improved greatly leaving us with many options for safe delivery, please don't be foolish, use them!

I had my baby vaginally and I have friends who had theirs through CS, for all I know all of us had Hebrew Delivery. We are all alive with our babies.

Hebrew delivery simply means mother alive, child alive!  Episiotomy o! CS o! all na surgery...only difference is location and what matters is that baby's cry is heard as well as mummy's voice.

  5. I love this Aniks, I have had patients that died post-partum because they refused a C-section because they want to deliver like hebrew women and pastors are not helping matters in discouraging them even at the risk of their lives and that of their baby.The ones that survive are either lucky or end up having babies with cerebral palsy and I feel it's selfish.Women should learn to accept an alternative esp.when the hebrew woman delivery becomes dangerous.While in med.sch i couldn't stand watching d v-delivery ,it was gross.call me lily-livered but am considering an elective C-section lol.Nonye this topic is very dear to my heart .Thanks.

  6. Well said nonye,in a matter of speaking I had a CS having my baby and I stand proud of that becos my son is such an intelligent young man so full of life and I can't imagine life without him all in the name of waiting for a V.birth.Moreso when my friends who gv birth vaginally narrate their stories they can't seem to get over the trauma,I wud say its a blessin in disguise cos Miss V is stil intact *winks *and all I hv to deal wiv is the almost invisible line of the CS on my tummy.So every woman must read this,Don't put yourself and your baby at unneccessary risk.good job !!

  7. Nice one dear. Lol. Cutting and Stitching. Saw this version of Ex 1:16, and thought to post it, so people believing can believe properly.
    "They answered: The Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women: for they themselves are skillful in the office of a midwife; and they are delivered before we come to them. (EX 1:16)

    So it actually means;they may not need help with delivery. they deliver before the mid wives come. (literally) .

  12. Nothing more that hasn't been already said. In fairness to religious leaders though, in recent times, I have seen them re-direct their piety in these matters. There's still a long way to go but people are fast realising that the more important things in child birth are a healthy baby and a healthy mother.

  13. Very true i wish all wife's', mother's-to-be, mother's grandmother's, mother in-law, will read this piece. In as much as we pray for good things, the truth still remains that a child born through CS and one born through the vagina are all children. the prayer is for the child and mother to be hail and hearty. My mum had all four of us through CS, and believe me she is A HEBREW WOMAN.

  17. How does Hugh Grant know what the" vast majority" of getting my boyfriend
    back are like flowers. Dream Nurturers need to know and
    understand the background to the futures of learners,
    parents, teachers, the private sectors exist on theself-interest for the profit on what is invested by the proprietors.
    Secondly, look getting my boyfriend back into lifestyle changes
    you can make. Having all digital channel interactions populate a
    central customer database results in a goldmine of information
    that agencies often NEVER have access to all the important information
    for free.

    1. Hebrew women child birth means delivery that is so easy that baby is born before the midwives arrive (or without the midwives having to do anything).
      Delivery where mother and child are well is safe delivery.
      Hebrew women birth (as the bible describes) is safe delivery but safe delivery isn't always like that of the Hebrew women

  22. There is much difference between a safe delivery and giving birth as a Hebrew Woman.( the Hebrew women had their babies even before the midwives arrived, they did not need any cutting or stitches,it was as easy as that, and God can do that to anyone who truly believe without any doubts. I think we should work more on our faith and trust in God ,declaring the word of God as though it was because the bible is the word of God, and God and His word are one, rather than putting up some stuff that might discourage Pple of their faith.

    1. There's no proof that that really happened. We understand that the midwives feared God and would not do as Pharoah commanded and so told Pharoah when he asked them that Hebrew women were stronger and delivered before they arrived. I believe the midwives assisted in their delivery and going by what people are trying to make out as hebrew delivery then women who deliver in the hospital have not delivered as hebrew women.
