Giving birth is a transformative event in a woman's life--whether it is her first baby or whether she has been pregnant before.  Since pregnancy and birth are not just physical but also spiritual and emotional journeys, many women recognize the desire for a ceremony in which the mother-to-be invites others to join her in celebrating and honoring this rite of passage to motherhood.  This type of ceremony is known as a Mother Blessing.

Unlike a baby shower, the focus of a Mother Blessing is not on the baby, but on the mother-to-be. It can include elements such as:

  • belly painting, or decorating a belly cast
  • pampering for the mom
  • assembling a quilt with squares bearing words or symbols to encourage mom in her labor
  • prayers read aloud and recorded in a book for mom to read before/during/after her birth
  • creating a necklace from beads contributed by guests for the mother to wear in labor

...there is no limit to the creative ways a mother's circle of support can show their love and encouragement in this special time in her life!

Our team will work with you to create a ceremony that includes words and images that hold meaning for you and your guests.

Fee includes phone/email consultation(s) to plan,  as well as facilitation of the blessing ceremony.
