Mother expresses gratitude to God
Blessed are you, Lord our God, creator of the Universe,
Who fashioned woman with wisdom and strength,
And created within her the miracle of childbirth.
In the merit of seeing such miracle of giving birth,
May my body be fully healed with a complete recovery.
May you renew its cycles of growth and life once more,
And grant me strength of body and spirit to nurture our son.
Blessed are you, Lord our God, for bestowing every kindness upon me.
