Prayers For Married and Single Mothers Suffering Post Partum Depression


I understand that Saint Gerard is the Patron Saint for all Mothers.
I have yet to find a prayer for Post Partum Depression.
Please pray for my niece. Thank you.


Dear St. Dymphna, patroness of all who suffer from nervous and emotional afflictions, please intercede for this woman suffering from post-partum depression. Ask our Father to help her find Jesus through her darkness and find comfort in spending time with Him in the Blessed Sacrament and the reception of the sacraments. May she find good souls to share her faith with and may she find hope. Amen.


Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with Thee.
Blessed art Thou among women,
and Blessed is the Fruit
of Thy Womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.


Blessed Zelie Martin, you knew the sadness of having to get a ‘wet nurse’ to feed your darling little baby whom we know as St Therese, as you suffered from breast cancer and were unable to feed your baby yourself. Your sadness must have been deep. Please pray for all mothers,
and for this loved niece,
who suffer deep sadness following the birth of their babies.

Please pray for their restoration,
for her restoration.
Thank you dear lady.


Novena Prayer to
St. Anthony of Padua

O Holy St. Anthony, gentlest of Saints,
your love for God and Charity for his creatures,
made you worthy,when on earth, to possess
miraculous powers. Miracles waited on your
word,which you were ever ready to speak
for those in trouble or anxiety. Encouraged by this,
I implore for you to obtain for me

The answer to my prayers may require a miracle.
Ever so, you are the Saint of Miracles. O gentle
and loving St. Anthony,whose heart was ever full
of human sympathy,whisper my petition into
the ears of thy Sweet Infant Jesus, who loved
to be folded in your arms, and the gratitude
of my heart will be ever yours,


Hail Mary,
full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the Fruit Of Thy Womb,
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.
