Our podcast is starting full force in May of 2021 – but we have the introduction podcast up!
Nothing in this podcast, book or on the blog should be considered medical advice. Couples should always consult with their health care provider and pray about health care decisions as a family.
Though we have made every attempt to be consistent with the correct doctrine and teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, The Gift of Giving Life and all related media are an expression of many of our own thoughts and reflections upon pondering the truths of the gospel that we treasure. Our book, website, and Facebook page are not official declarations of doctrine in regards to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to which we belong and cherish our membership. Please make sure to pray and ponder about everything you read.
The Gift of Giving Life: Rediscovering the Divine Nature of Pregnancy and Birth, book AND podcast offers – a spiritual look at pregnancy, birth and mothering by and for women of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and other women of faith.
What we will share in the podcast!
We will be sharing inspiring birth stories and thoughts from real women, scriptures, words of the prophets and other spiritual texts related to pregnancy and birth.
We hope to have guests in to share their experiences, as well as our host, Sheridan sharing essays, stories and thoughts.
The Gift of Giving Life does not advocate for any one type of birth or approach to prenatal care, rather it intends to unify our families and communities in regard to the sacredness of birth. We also aim to provide you with resources, information, and inspiration that you may not have had access to all in one place before.
Though we have written the book unabashedly for an audience of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, we hope that birthing women, birth attendants and birth advocates of all faiths will find it useful and informative. If you have any questions about any of the terms used in the podcast, book or the blog, or about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we invite you to visit their website or email any of the authors through this website.
We know that our Father and Mother in Heaven care deeply about the means by which life is created—from conception, to gestation to birth. We have been commanded to “multiply and replenish the earth,” but with this commandment we were also given a reason: that we might have joy. We hope that this book and podcast brings peace, joy, and comfort to your families.
