Of course, the birth of a baby is a joyful event for every family. However, any woman, even already experienced in these matters, experiences a panic fear of the reproductive process. In this connection, it is necessary to prepare for the upcoming birth even at the stage of pregnancy planning. Someone is preparing for this by attending various special courses, but for someone, prayer is a good tool.
If a woman who is about to give birth to her child of God is a Christian, then she should visit the church, go through the communion rite and forgive her sins before the priest. This will help her gain spiritual strength. And since not in all cases the pregnancy process runs smoothly, it will not hinder the appeal to the saints in a request to protect themselves and their baby.
Spiritual preparation for childbirth
In addition, the entire period of pregnancy and the birth itself very heavily load the body of a woman. Therefore, in addition to physical preparation, it is important to undergo spiritual training through various means and measures. And here it is important to exclude the appearance of any kind of negative thoughts, because all negative accumulated in the soul in most cases has a bad effect both on the course of pregnancy itself and on the process of the baby’s appearance. For this reason, various kinds of complications may begin to develop during or after childbirth.
Qualities such as pride and rebellion are a good motive for serious problems. In addition, childbirth is also a good test for any woman for the ability to withstand, in addition to physical, psychological stresses, to distinguish body signals and take appropriate necessary actions, as well as find harmony with other people, being in a special position.
From the old times, there were special rules for pregnant women according to which it was impossible to quarrel, get angry at anyone and lose heart. At that time, people clearly understood that the future mother was crushing her baby with all the negative emotions and emotions. Especially “scared” are hidden grievances that pose a serious threat to the health of a pregnant woman and her baby.
Therefore, in order for the birth to take place without complications, it is extremely important to remove all negative thoughts or change them to good ones. If any insult has crept in your soul, you should not close yourself from it, you should accept all the bad that is, and then just release it all from yourself so that there is nothing left, forgive all your past offenders. The best remedy for misunderstanding the people around you is to accept them for who they are.

“Oh, blessed mother of Matron, we resort to your intercession and we pray to you tearfully. As having the daring boldness in the Lord, pour a warm prayer for your servants who are in the grief of those who are present and who ask for help from you. Truly the word of the Lord: ask and it is given unto you also: as you two deliberate from you, to the earth about all things, even as you ask, there will be an im from my Father, even to heaven.
Hear our well-being and bring it to the throne to the Lord, and even before you stand before all, there can be much prayer of the righteous before God. Yes, the Lord will not completely forget us, but he will watch from heaven above on the grief of His servants and the fruit of the womb will bestow upon the useful.

Be the name of the Lord blessed from now to forever. Amen”.
During childbirth, one should not forget our savior Jesus Christ. To appeal to him, a prayer – an assistant will be as follows:
“Lord Jesus Christ, our God, from the Eternal Father the Son was born before the age, and in the last days, by the grace and assistance of the Holy Spirit, deigning to be born of the Blessed Virgin like a baby, and lay in a manger. Lord Himself, in the beginning having created man and his wife, conjugate him, giving the commandment to them: Grow, and multiply, and fill the earth; have mercy upon Your great servant Thy servant (name), who is preparing to give birth according to Your commandment. Forgive her free and involuntary sins, Your grace give her strength to safely resolve her burden, save this and the baby in health and helplessness, protect Your Angels and save from the hostile actions of evil spirits, and from every evil thing. As God is Good and a Man-lover, God bless you, Father and Son, and the Holy Spirit, now and ever and forever and ever. Amen”.
It is worth remembering that easy birth will be only if you turn to the saints from a pure heart. It is also necessary to devote oneself to oneself, maintain peace and enjoy the support of one’s relatives.
