A Mother Blessing is a beautiful pre-birth tradition which has become more popular in recent years.
It is very different from a conventional baby shower, which is traditionally more about the gifts. A Mother Blessing is ALL about nurturing the mother and filling her with love and confidence as she awaits crossing the threshold into motherhood. Even if it’s not her first baby, it’s her first time with this baby.
What happens at a Mother Blessings?
- It involves inviting the mother-to-be’s closest female friends and family. We recommend keeping the group to less than 15 guests, as this is an intimate event.
- Typically, it’s very ceremonial. There may be poetry/scripture readings, music, a beautiful bead exchange and a red string, ties that bind us, ritual. There will be candles and flowers and maybe affirmation flag painting or even recently, everyone added an affirmation to a Wonder Woman cape.
- The blessing will vary in proceedings and rituals and we will explore options so that you can choose the flow for your ceremony. Whatever your spiritual beliefs, we can customize a respectful, beautiful ceremony for you.
