Miraculously Healed from Pregnancy Complications!
Jo-Anne - Coffs Harbour, Australia (testimony shared from Christian Assemblies International website)
Hello, my name is Jo-Anne and I come from Coffs Harbour, Australia.
I would love to share with you the story of how the Lord healed me from some problems that I experienced during my first pregnancy. About two years ago I moved to France with my husband Michy for a period of about eight months.
About two months after we arrived in Paris, I was overjoyed to discover that I had fallen pregnant with our first child. At about twelve weeks I went to a specialist for an initial ultrasound to check that the pregnancy was progressing normally. The ultrasound showed that I had a serious condition called Placenta Praevia. In layman’s terms that means the placenta was sitting in the wrong position, at the bottom of my womb. In the early stages of pregnancy this is relatively harmless, but as the baby grows heavier it becomes more serious and the mother must have complete rest if a life-threatening haemorrhage is to be avoided. It can be very dangerous for both the mother and child. This condition usually means that the baby cannot be delivered in the normal manner, but I would need to have the baby by Caesarean section. There are varying degrees of this condition, but my prognosis was that I had the worst type of Placenta Praevia.
I immediately went home and told my husband about the problem, and that it would mean that I would not be able to return to Australia to have the baby. I was very concerned, so we talked about it and I quoted to myself the scripture in HEBREWS 11:6, which says that he that cometh to God must BELIEVE. My husband and I laid hands on my stomach and we prayed that everything in my womb would move to the correct position. INSTANTLY I felt something in my tummy move and I knew that the Lord had performed a mighty miracle. When I went back to the doctor a few weeks later everything was completely normal and the doctor could not believe it. I WAS COMPLETELY HEALED! Praise the Lord! We now have a beautiful healthy little son called Jonathan and since then we've also had a lovely little girl as well. I thank the Lord every day for my wonderful and healthy family!
Love In Christ,
