Wives and mothers carry many burdens, emotionally and physically, and St. Rachel's were no different. She, in particular, can pray wives through infertility and birth fears. A St. Rachel bracelet would be a touching spiritual gift for an expectant mother.
An Old Testament saint, Rachel was the wife of Jacob. Like several women in the Bible, the Lord blessed her with children at the end of her life. The mother of Joseph and Benjamin, she died while delivering Benjamin. St. Rachel never gave up hope that the Lord would bless her with children, and she was rewarded for her devoted faith.
Rachel's feast day is November 1, and she is the patroness of childless wives and childbirth.
