Here is a mother's prayer
Lord Jesus, I pray to you with love for this sweet hope that I hold in my womb. You have granted me the immense gift of a small living life in my life: I humbly thank you for choosing me as an instrument of your love. In this sweet waiting, help me to live in continuous abandonment to your will. Grant me a pure, strong, generous mother's heart. To you I offer the worries for the future; anxieties, fears, desires for the little creature that I still don't know. Let her be born healthy in her body, remove from her all physical harm and all danger to the soul.
You, Mary, who knew the ineffable joys of a holy motherhood, give me a heart capable of transmitting a living and ardent Faith.
Sanctify my expectation, bless this happy hope of mine, let the fruit of my womb sprout in virtue and holiness through you and your Divine Son. Amen.

Prayer to Saint Joseph
To you, O blessed Joseph, gripped by tribulation, we have recourse, and confidently invoke your patronage, after that of your most holy bride. For, that sacred bond of charity, which bound you to the Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God, and for the paternal love you brought to the child Jesus, concerns, we pray you, with a kind eye the dear inheritance that Jesus Christ acquired with His Blood, and with your power and help you help our needs. Protect, O provident guardian of the divine Family, the chosen offspring of Jesus Christ: keep away from us, O beloved Father, the errors and vices that infect the world; assist us propitiously from heaven in this struggle with the power of darkness, O our strongest protector; and just as you once saved the threatened life of the little baby Jesus from death, so now you defend the holy Church of God from hostile snares and from all adversities; and extend your patronage over each one of us every now, so that by your example and through your help, we may virtuously live, piously die and attain eternal bliss in heaven.
