Bless me, God. Let me carry this child in health and ease. Let no harm or misfortune come to me or to the precious life growing within me. Let labor begin in its proper time. Let me bear my child without too much pain. Let my child be born in health into a world filled with peace. May my child grow to bring goodness and blessing into this world. For the miracle of creation that is taking place inside me, I thank You, God, Creator of all.
Rabbi Naomi Levy
