Blessing for baby in utero

can I ask a priest to bless my unborn child - touching the bump etc ? Or would that be odd? I would be comfortable with it I just hope Father would

I don’t think it would be odd, it’s a human life

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it per se. I think it might just be a matter of if the priest is comfortable with it.

Congratulations!

I’m guessing it might be more common to use the aspergillum and make the sign of the cross over you.

My pregnancy was high risk and I received a blessing from a priest few days before giving birth.
