It feels like there’s really nothing more to say beyond the title. It says it all, doesn’t it?
God has blessed women to become moms in a variety of ways. Natural birth moms who have and raise their children, moms who gift barren parents with a child through adoption, moms who choose life after suffering previous abortions, moms who have lost their babies through miscarriage. At ICU Mobile, we have M.O.M.s (Mobile Operation Managers) who pour into their teams and their mobile ministry to ensure mothers everywhere hear the gospel and see their baby’s lives by ultrasound.
Every one of them superheroes. There is an unexplainable will, power, and ability behind a woman who has experienced motherhood on any level. When God equipped women to conceive children, He combined conception with supernatural abilities. Even in miscarriage, a woman becomes a mother at conception and even if a baby is lost during pregnancy, motherhood reigns within a woman’s soul.
By nature, she becomes more intuitive, fearless, and bold. There is nothing she won’t do to protect her family and she is capable of doing almost anything. When we see women considering abortion due to fear, insecurity, or lack of support, these are brought by the enemy and people in her life who are driven by the enemy. When we are able to visit with a woman on an ICU Mobile unit, show her the power her body holds to develop another human life, and pray encouragement and hope over her, it changes everything.
Unfortunately, this is the reality many women with an unplanned pregnancy are facing. The father threatens to leave, her family tells her how much harder her life will be if she has a baby, and every media outlet she’s on tells her it’s her body, her choice. They tell her that she’ll never have the life or career she envisioned. Her life will never be the same again if she has a baby. They tell her successful women are empowered by their ability to choose what’s right for them.
And they’re absolutely right. Her life will be hard with a baby. Babies don’t come with instructions for every situation. She’ll have a lot of learning to do and make sacrifices that she wouldn’t make otherwise. It is her body and her body was made to carry and give birth to new life. Her career? It’ll probably be better than she ever thought because she has a little human who relies on her and her will to do everything better than ever will keep her on a path to success.
Her life will be completely different. It will be filled with countless moments when her precious baby bursts into a smile and giggles when she walks into the room. She’ll get to experience the feeling of that tiny hand wrapped around her finger. She’ll have dance parties that can’t compare with any club she’s ever been to. Empowerment? What’s more empowering than forming and giving life to an entirely new human being?
Every mom is a superhero. We’re here to be a shield to the kryptonite of fear and doubt. ICU Mobile exists to show women every single day that they are capable of things beyond their imaginations through ultrasound. We are here to encourage them, speak life to them, and make sure they understand the power within them.
"God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns." - Psalm 46:5
