St Felicity -- when you need more mental and physical strength 
This Roman saint was in prison when she became a mother. Though she was overcome with joy, her baby was soon taken from her and she was sent to be executed for her faith. She went into combat mode, as described by St. Perpetua, demonstrating the sheer strength and bravery motherhood had granted her.
