The Catholic Church has a long history of praying for new born babies. The story of Our Lady of Guadalupe is especially pertinent to this issue.
As the story goes, in 1531, Juan Diego was walking through Mexico City when he saw a miraculous image of the Blessed Virgin Mary on a hill called Tepeyac.
