Islamic Adab Etiqueetes Pregnancy Childbirth labour Surah Ale Imran Ayat 35

Actions during Pregnancy and childbirth:

There are no specific duas or verses of the Qur'aan to be recited during pregnancy or childbirth but in general any Adhkaar, recitation of the Qur'aan can be adopted with abundant duas for the well being of the mother and the baby.

 The mother should make an intention that she will devote the baby for the Service of the Deen of Allah (SWT) as per the dua of wife of Imran: 
[3:35] (Remember) when Imran's wife said: .O my Lord, I have vowed that what is in my womb will be devoted exclusively for You. So, accept (it) from me. You, certainly You, are the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing.

During the pangs of childbirth, certain Ulamah have recommended Surah Yaseen (Chapter 36) and other Adhkaar to ease childbirth (as incantations) and there is no prohibition in reciting them for the ease, comfort and consolation of the expectant mother.
