The inquiry of every father and mother should be, “What shall we do unto the child that shall be born unto us?” The effect of prenatal influences has been by many lightly regarded; but the instruction sent from heaven to those Hebrew parents, and twice repeated in the most explicit and solemn manner, shows how this matter is looked upon by our Creator. Patriarchs and Prophets
Hopefully, every parent wants to give their child the best start in life. Manoah and his wife wanted to give Samson the best start in life. When Mrs. Manoah learned that she would have a child, she asked “What shall we do unto the child that shall be born unto us?”
1. Not eat anything unclean
2. Not to drink any strong drink or wine
3. Observe all that God had commanded her

She may not eat of any thing that cometh of the vine, neither let her drink wine or strong drink, nor eat any unclean thing: all that I commanded her let her observe.-Judges 13:14
