In a recent Instagram post, Christian artist Francesca Battistelli updated her fans on some scary news with an ending that could only come from God. The singer woke up at 10 weeks pregnant in excruciating pain to learn that she had a condition that the doctors said required surgery. But after praying, Francesca Battistelli and husband just didn’t have peace about the operation. And that’s when God stepped in with a miracle.
Francesca Battistelli Family
This is not the first pregnancy for Francesca and her husband, drummer Matthew Goodwin. The couple has four children at home; Matthew Elijah, Audrey Jane, Isaac James and Wyatt Samuel.
Francesca’s Fifth Baby
But while pregnant with this fifth baby, she learned she had a cyst that had grown to the size of a grapefruit and it had twisted the ovary, ‘cutting off the blood supply and causing the intense pain.’ Her doctor warned that these cysts didn’t go away on their own. And while he hated to operate while Francesca was pregnant, he was concerned that the cyst would continue to grow, and that it would twist again. Her doctor shared, “It would have to be a miracle” for her to avoid surgery.

Francesca Battistelli Husband
After receiving the troubling news, Francesca and her husband decided to wait and weigh their options. They wanted to pray over the situation.
Francesca shared, “We talked and prayed and prayed and talked. I asked so many dear friends for prayer for wisdom and for the cyst to disappear. After praying it through, we just didn't have peace about doing the surgery now. We believed God could heal me!”
The two had faith that surgery was not going to be the answer at this time.
After a few days, my faith-filled hubby looked at me and said, "your belly looks smaller. That cyst is shrinking."

Sorry I've been so quiet around here, friends! In case you haven't heard the news, we are expecting baby #5!!! 👦🏻👧🏼👦🏼👦🏻🤰🏻 I've been fighting some craaaaazy morning sickness, so I've not been doing much these days besides sleeping and snuggling my babes. But here's a sweet photo with my love from the @klovefanawards last weekend! So excited for y'all to check it out this Sunday night on @tbn! We did a really fun performance of The Breakup Song! ☎️
Francesca Battistelli Baby Ultrasound Miracle
When the couple went for their follow-up ultrasound, the moment of truth was at hand. Francesca shared, “The sweet tech said, "we will take a look at that cyst while we're here," and Matt said, "you won't find it. It's gone. We've been praying."”
After the ultrasound technician updated them on the general details, height, weight, etc. she measured a small circular thing she could see in the frame. The tech then reported that the cyst had shrunk. “It’s not even a cyst anymore. It’s gone!”
At that point, Francesca Battistelli and husband, plus everyone in the room praised God and thanked Jesus!
“He did a miracle in my body, ad this sweet tech (who is pregnant with her first baby) got to witness it!” Francesca said. She added, ” My faith has been so strengthened by this, and I pray yours is too”
Praise God for this miracle! How wonderful it is to see this family of faith share their testimony of how very good our God is!
