The birth of children and the methods with which to approach this issue is an aspect of the Islamic lifestyle that due to its importance cannot be ignored. We can analyze the lives of the Imams in order to come up with practical advice that can be implemented by Shias in our time and in this era. This article analyzes the traditions that are available to use to study the birth of the Imams and the interaction of the Imams with women who were pregnant with the next Imam to come up with this advice, while keeping in mind that there are certain things that are specific to the infallibles and cannot be replicated by us. We see the Imams were always present at the place of birth, taking the newborn in their arms right after his birth, choosing a midwife for the mother, preventing any distressing news from reaching the mother, and reciting spiritual messages to the newborn. This article shows us new aspects that can be useful to married couples and to families that are expecting a newborn, in addition to providing new material to the gynecological and psychological spheres.
