In the past, prayers for the health of the pregnant woman and the unborn child were extremely popular, and that tradition has survived to this day.
In the past, only other women mothers of families helped in labor, so if there were any complications, prayers could only be raised to several virgins considered protective of pregnant women, asking them to take care of the mother and bring the baby safe to the world.
Which virgin can we ask to get pregnant?
There are several heavenly protective virgins of pregnant women, especially those who also suffered the pains of childbirth or sheltered babies in their womb, such as Saint Anne and the Virgin Mary in various invocations, or others such as Saint Margaret of Antioquia, Saint Helena or Saint Rita.
Even today many people raise their prayers to them to ask for future mothers and their children.
Despite humanity's medical advances, faith is a powerful weapon that many people cling to in that defining moment that is the birth of a new family member.
For this reason, even today there are infinities of prayers and prayers destined for the protectors of pregnant women.
The Virgin of Milk and the Virgin of Sweet Wait: Holy Mary, Mother of God
The Virgin of the MilkIs a invocation of the Virgin Mary that represents her while offering her womb to the Child Jesus.
The meaning of this image, in addition to representing the tender intimacy of the Virgin's motherhood, also symbolizes milk as the spiritual food that the Church provides to the baptized.
The oldest images represent the Virgin Mary with her gaze directed towards the observer and at other times she directs her eyes towards the Child Jesus.
To this Marian invocation called Virgen de la Leche, a significant group of women who yearn for a child, but have problems in pregnancy, prays fundamentally.
Also, many seek refuge in faith when they pray and raise a prayer to Our Lady of Sweet Hope, in order to grant them the happiness of being mothers.
We must pray to this virgin with great faith and showing her our mother's heart, which is ready to carry that responsibility.

Saint Anne, miraculous protector and patroness of pregnant women
Many are the churches dedicated to Saint Anne and even today on July 26, masses are held where the attendance is large.

Women close to childbirth lit candles in front of the images of Saint Anne, asking that her birth be not difficult, and even during labor, many placed her image on her womb.
