Good day,

I would like to share my testimony regarding the Egyptian curse – giving birth.

I went to Vera’s DNA and prenatal workshop with my mother the first time around June 2015. I had a miscarriage a few weeks before then so the invite got my attention.
That was the first time I heard about the Egyptian curse and had it removed. Up to then I was terrified of giving birth because I believed in doing it completely natural. My thought was if Mary could do it then I could too. But due to my mother, aunt, friends and sister going through severe trauma, I was hesitant. After the workshop I had peace, burden off my shoulders.
My mother had pre-eclampsia with my brother. He was born prematurely and passed away 3 days after being born 🙁
With me, my mother was in labour for 21 hours and clinic had to induce labour and had to break her water.
My sister had her cord around her neck and went into distress, she was born via emergency cesarean a week before she was due.

Anyhow, there was onther DNA workshop over the weekend and this time I brought hubby along so he could also pray through it. At this time I was about 6 months pregnant.

I gave birth as first time mom, at 40 weeks in 5 hours and 18 min. Completely natural. This is a chart my midwife gave me:

Average labour:
Early phase
7-8 hours
0-3 cm dilation

Active phase
3-5 hours
4-7 cm dilation

Transition phase
1/2 hour -2 hours
8-10 cm dilation

1/2 hour – 2 hours

My labour
Early phase
I wasnt even aware of it. Midwife checked me at 40 weeks(day before I gave birth) and I was already 4cm dilated.

Active phase
Started feeling contractions on 16/07/2016 at 1:30 AM.  Got to Genesis clinic at 3 AM. I was 7 cm dilated and still smiling. 3:10 AM my water broke.

Transition phase
Not sure when I went into this phase but between 3:10 AM and 6:38 AM I was busy with contractions.
I was 8cm dilated and got into the water about 4:00 Am

Pushing phase
10 minutes later I was holding my beautiful baby girl in my arms.

I must add that my hubby was praying in tongues while being in the bath supporting me. He said Gods presence was there. My contractions were quite close and painful so I didnt really notice but I  believe His presence made it more bearable. I will definitely do it all again 🙂

I also had a lot of people coming to me and saying I would be on bedrest my last month,that she will be born early and must prepare for it. That her shoulders might get stuck and should rather go for a c-section etc. I had peace in my heart that everything will be fine and thats only due to the fact that I could apply the blood of Christ over my life, I could bring issues into the light and its all thanks to Vera and her team being willing to do God’s will for their lives. Thank you very much, may God bless you and your ministry!

Meanwhile at the workshop(feel I need to add this) the Holy Spirit revealed to me that my father was illigitimate. My mother confirmed this at next break without me even mentioning it.  She apparently also only found that out a week before by accident and they have been married 28 years. Needless to say it was a major breakthrough in my life since that came into the light and I could deal with it. I ALWAYS had a sense that I didnt belong but could never get to root untill that day)
