The 19th Chapter of Quran is named after Mary. There is a fine description of Christ's birth here, see:

19: 16-34
16 Relate in the Book (the story of) Mary, when she withdrew from her family to a place in the East.

17 She placed a screen (to screen herself) from them; then We sent her our angel, and he appeared
before her as a man in all respects.

18 She said: "I seek refuge from thee to (Allah) Most Gracious: (come not near) if thou dost fear Allah."

19 He said: "Nay, I am only a messenger from thy Lord, (to announce) to thee the gift of a holy son."

20 She said: "How shall I have a son, seeing that no man has touched me, and I am not unchaste?"

21 He said: "So (it will be): Thy Lord saith, 'that is easy for Me: and
(We wish) to appoint him as a Sign unto men and a Mercy from Us': It is
a matter (so) decreed."

22 So she conceived him, and she retired with him to a remote place.

23 And the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm-tree:
She cried (in her anguish): "Ah! would that I had died before this!
would that I had been a thing forgotten and out of sight!"

24 But (a voice) cried to her from beneath the (palm-tree): "Grieve not! for thy Lord hath provided a rivulet beneath thee;"

25 "And shake towards thyself the trunk of the palm-tree: It will let fall fresh ripe dates upon thee."

26 "So eat and drink and cool (thine) eye. And if thou dost see any man, say, 'I have vowed a fast to (Allah) Most Gracious, and this day will I enter into not talk with any human being'"

27 At length she brought the (babe) to her people, carrying him (in her arms). They said: "O Mary! truly an amazing thing hast thou brought!"

28 "O sister of Aaron! Thy father was not a man of evil, nor thy mother a woman unchaste!"

29 But she pointed to the babe. They said: "How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle?"

30 He said: "I am indeed a servant of Allah: He hath given me revelation and made me a prophet;"

31 "And He hath made me blessed wheresoever I be, and hath enjoined on me Prayer and Charity as long as I live;"

32 "(He) hath made me kind to my mother, and not overbearing or miserable;"

33 "So peace is on me the day I was born, the day that I die, and the day that I shall be raised up to life (again)"!

34 Such (was) Jesus the son of Mary: (it is) a statement of truth, about which they (vainly) dispute.
