Celebrating and supporting you before your birth
We’ve all heard of a baby shower but how about a celebration that supports and celebrates you? A Mother Blessing is a chance to bring your nearest and dearest together to fill you up with love and confidence before your birth.
I am available to hold Mother Blessings in and around Dorset.
What is a Mother Blessing?
A Mother Blessing is derived from a blessingway which is a ceremony or gathering that honors and celebrates a pregnant person’s journey into motherhood. It is a spiritual and cultural tradition that originated from Navajo culture and is now practiced by many different communities around the world. The focus is on creating a supportive and positive environment for the expecting mother, rather than on gift-giving or baby-focused activities.
What does a Mother Blessing involve?
We can work together to curate the perfect celebration for you but here are some ideas you can include whilst sitting in circle with those you hold dear:
- Sharing of readings, poems and positive birth stories
- Sharing of support through pregnancy, birth and motherhood
- Making flower crowns
- Thread ceremony
- Belly painting or casting
- Foot soak/pedicure and general pampering of Mum to be!
