Pregnancy

The patron saint of expecting mothers is St. Gianna Beretta Molla.

“When a woman is in labor, she is in anguish because her hour has arrived; but when she is given birth to a child, she no longer remembers the pain because of her joy that a child has been born into the world.”  – John 16:21
