The right of your mother is that you know that she carried you where no one carries anyone; she gave to
you the fruit of her heart that which no one gives to anyone, and she protected you with all of her organs.
She did not care if she went hungry as long as you ate; if she remained thirsty as long as you drank; if she was uncovered as long as you were clothed; if she was in the sun as long as you were in the shade. She gave up sleep for your sake and she protected you from heat and cold, all in order that you might
belong to her. You will not be able to show her gratitude, except through All°h’s K help and Him granting you success. - Imam Ali zayn ul abideen.
The Holy Prophet [s] said: "Yes, the reward of a woman during her pregnancy until childbirth, and unto when she weans the child, is like that of a stationed (soldier guarding the Muslims' borders against the attack of pagan enemies) for the sake of Allah. So, if she dies during that, she will have the rank of a martyr."
Man La Yahduruhul Faqih, vol. 3, p. 561
Imam Amir-ul-Mu'mineen Ali [a] said: "No milk is greater in prosperity than the mother's milk for the baby to suck from." Wasa'il-ush Shi'ah vol. 21, p. 452
The Holy Prophet [s] said: "When a woman conceives with child she will be as a warrior who fasts during the day and keeps vigil at nights praying, and strives with his soul and wealth on the way of Allah. Then, when she delivers, there will be for her such a great reward with Allah that she does not know how magnificent it is. Thereafter, when she suckles (the child), she will have as much reward as freeing a child from Ismail's descendants for every suck. And, when she brings suckling the child to an end, an angel beside her tells her to begin the action again for she has surely been forgiven."
Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 104, p. 106
The Holy Prophet [s] said: "There is no milk for a baby better than the milk of its mother."
Mustadrak-ul-Wasa'il, section 48
Imam Sadiq said:
A woman who dies during delivery will not be accountable for her deeds in this world since she has died with the sorrow of childbirth.
Heaven is under the feet of mothers. [Mizan al-Hikmat, v.10, p.712]
