Just thinking out loud, any trustworthy commentary, specially from saints, about the possibility that St John the Baptist was delivered by the Virgin Mary, acting as a midwife? Just curious.

Interesting question! I never thought about that before. I don’t know of any scripture or commentary on Mary as widwife for Elizabeth at John’s birth. It seems to me that there is a good probability should would have at least been present for the birth, if not herself a midwife.

(The bread which we break, is it not a participation in the body of Christ? (1 Cor. 10:16))
After the Archangel Gabriel told the Blessed Virgin Mary that she was to bear a Son through the Holy Spirit -- she went with haste the visit Elizabeth and stayed for three months. People can draw their own conclusions.
