Saint Raymond Nonnatus is the patron saint of expectant mothers, midwives, infertile couples and newly born babies. He was delivered in 1204 through Cesarean section due to his mother’s death at childbirth. This is how the name, “Non natus” meaning “Not born” came about. He lived a life of complete devotion to God from when he was little till his death. He was later made patron saint of expectant mothers.

This prayer to Saint Raymond Nonnatus has proven that his intercession works great wonders. So many women who were expected to have complications during labour have testified to successful and nearly stress-free childbirth:

“O Blessed Saint Raymond Nonnatus, so loving to all your devotees, I being last of them all, I am happy to know that through the infinite goodness of God, He has deigned to make you a Saint, adorned thee with special graces and help, for which I am most thankful.

On the Most Holy Trinity, and you my adorable patron saint, through your merits and those of the blood poured by our Savior Jesus Christ, and through the Immaculate Conception of Mary, I most humbly beg thee, deign to intercede from the most sublime God, protection for the holy Mother Church, that through your prayers, God’s wrath be taken away, see the progress of true faith, defeat the wrong doctrines, the peace and understanding of all Christians, peace of the whole country and the redemption of the Christian captives.

I am humbly begging you, my devoted saint, that you may be my intercessor. Since for many hours you did not die of the womb of your dead mother an you were successfully delivered from her side, to be the joy of the world, and that my soul may live in grace in this earthly world, may I imitate your live and exemplary holiness, so that when the hour of my death comes, I may detest all evil thoughts and temporary wealth of this world, so that with the burning love for God, my soul may reach heaven and together with you and the angels and all the saints, praise God Almighty forever.

Deign to grant me, most amiable Father, the favor I am asking in this novena (mention the request). I firmly believe most amiable Father, that you will be my protection since you are merciful to any one imploring thy help. But if the favor I am asking will not be for the glory of God and the good of my soul, then beg from God that I will be resigned to his Divine Will, so that I may have the peace of soul while I live, till the hour of my death and that I enjoy true happiness in heaven. Amen”.
