I'll await the new edition

I wonder if it could be used from a distance, say, from a sidewalk in front of a clinic??

Deacon has some of the text:

In part, the blessing reads: “May almighty God, who has created new life now bless the child in your womb. The Lord has brought you the joy of motherhood: may he now bless you with a safe and healthy pregnancy. You thank the Lord today for the gift of your child: may he bring you and your child one day to share in the unending joys of heaven.”

There’s also an optional blessing for parish communities which reads in part: “May God bless this parish community as it welcomes the gift of new life and joyfully accepts the responsibility of sharing in the spiritual formation of this child (or children).”
