In the LDS religion we believe that blessings come from the Lord and are available to help us in times of need. Elder Bednar has said this: "Since last October I have reflected repeatedly upon the phrase 'the tender mercies of the Lord.' Through personal study, observation, pondering, and prayer, I believe I have come to better understand that the Lord’s tender mercies are the very personal and individualized blessings, strength, protection, assurances, guidance, loving-kindnesses, consolation, support, and spiritual gifts which we receive from and because of and through the Lord Jesus Christ. Truly, the Lord suits 'his mercies according to the conditions of the children of men'(D&C 46:15)".
Some ideas that I have heard from people around this idea have to do with being grateful for these perceived blessings. "I was grateful to be able to do the hard work of labor", "I was grateful for the medication that we have these days", "I was grateful that I was able to not have unneeded medications". etc.
Believing that these things can be and are blessings from God may not change whether or not we follow the predominate culture in our birthing practices, but it does change how we perceive it.
