Prayer to Saint Walburga.

She has the reputation of being an effective intercessor during labour and delivery.

"Almighty God, our Father, Whose praises are sung even by innocent children, grant through the merits of Saint Walburga, that I may safely and joyfully give birth to the child within me, that through Holy Baptism I may consecrate this new life to Your service and to the praise and honor of Your Holy Name.

Lord Jesus, Who dwelt nine months in the blessed womb of Your mother, through her chaste love, hear my prayers, Mary, whose joys were made full by the birth of Your Son, assist me when my hour comes, Saint Walburga, I recommend myself and the child I bear to you. Saint Walburga, pray for me."
