For my wife's delivery

My wife was induced for being past her due date at 41 and a half weeks. Everything has been so far from ideal when we had hoped for a completely natural birth. It is looking like she’ll need a c-section. I pray that she and our baby come out of this safely and are healthy.

for your wife and baby

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us. Lord, hear my prayer for this persons intentions and have mercy on the whole world. (x10)

I did pray a decade of my daily Divine Mercy Chaplet for your intention.

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

Amen.

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

Thank you everyone! They both made it through safe and healthy and without a c-section!

They had said the baby’s heart rate was dipping during contractions and that my wife wasn’t responding well to the pitocin. She had spent nearly all day at only 6cm with irregular contractions and the baby not dropping any lower. They told us they would increase the pitocin to try to get her moving but that they were seeing caput swelling in the baby’s head much earlier in the drop than expected, and my wife didn’t seem to be taking well to the pitocin amd we should start to consider a c-section before it is an emergency.

They checked my wife for changes a couple hours later and everything had turned around to the point that she was ready to push our baby out! Thank you so much!
