Prayer at childbirth and help of the image of the Virgin "Helper in childbirth"
As the childbirth approaches and approaches, the woman, in anticipation of this moment, experiences some degree of fear in one degree or another.
Since this process is quite an exciting event in our life, and young mothers, having listened to all sorts of horrible and horrible stories from grandmothers and neighbors who have already given birth or friends, who still have pain in their pains from contractions and these serious attempts, start up the imagination in confusion and experience some slight fear. But in this or that case, everyone is somehow preparing for the emergence of a new life in its own way.
Some resort to finding a good hospital and doctors, some believers turn to the temple to the image of the Virgin, readchildbirth prayer, someone busy bustling chops caps, wheelchairs and chest of drawers in the nursery. All this preparation and fuss are known to us from time immemorial and sometimes makes you very nervous.

There are also objections: how to readchildbirth prayerbefore the image of the Virgin, if this process is not easy enough, you should think about how the fights will take place, what are the ways to facilitate their flow, and indeed, when to pray something - at the moment when you are already sitting in the obstetric chair?

In ancient Russia after readingmaternity prayer helper, the latter took place more calmly and evenly, even during the course of a complicated pregnancy.
In the long list of assistants there is also a rather extensive list of images of saints, martyrs and reverends who are ready to bring ourchildbirth prayersLord and facilitate their difficult course.
Among them are the kondaks and tropari to the righteous Elizabeth and Zechariah, a prayer to all the holy and disembodied forces, a prayer and a troparion to the holy petitioner Anastasia, reading the image of St. Melania the Roman and the Great Martyr Catherine.
