    Dear St Margaret, please pray my baby is healthy and born safely. Preserve me and my baby from danger and from the excessive pains accompanying childbirth, and shield the child which I now carry, that it may be healthy and see the light of day and receive the lustral waters of baptism through Jesus Christ our Lord.
