Mary, the Mother of Jesus

Interestingly, Mary, the mother of baby Jesus, appears to be the only woman present during the birth of her first baby. This may not have truly been the case as any other women who were present during Mary’s labour and delivery may just have been omitted from the biblical account as many women are omitted from historical accounts written by men.

Never mind that Mary’s mother seemingly allowed her to travel to a distant town so close to delivering her first baby (I am speaking as a mother whose daughter is ready to deliver her first baby any day now)…..
