Does anyone know any Orthodox prayers for expectant parents? 

I found these http://www.saintgregoryoutreach.org/2012/02/orthodox-prayers-pregnancy.html.  While they are nice, they are only from the mother's perspective.

I doubt there are any Orthodox prayers for expectant parents which include the father, unless they are recent compositions.  Including the father is a relatively recent, Western phenomenon.  Tongue

Here's hoping my defense at the dread judgement seat of Christ doesn't turn out to be 'well I argued about what day it was.....a lot'

I've got one....

Lord, have mercy on "mom's name" and "dad's name".

I think we often get lost in seeking written prayers, when prayer is little more than a "conversation with God".

Lord, have mercy on your parents

Lord, have mercy on mom and dad who are going to raise you.

Most Holy Trinity, have mercy on us. Amen
