MOTHER BLESSING CEREMONY
THE ALTERNATIVE BABY SHOWER
Traditionally in almost all cultures women have gathered together before the birth to wish the mother well. Mother Blessings are celebrations of pregnant women and their transition into motherhood. These special mother-centreed gatherings offer friends and family a fresh approach to honouring, supporting, nurturing, and encouraging mothers-to-be.
What is a Mother Blessing Ceremony?
A wonderful and unique alternative to the traditional baby shower, a Mother Blessing is a celebration of a woman’s transition into motherhood. Traditionally known as a Blessingway, this ceremony is seen as a rite of passage and focuses on providing the Mum-to-be with emotional, mental and spiritual support, encouragement and celebration by the women close to her.
This ceremony is traditionally a woman-only event, but obviously men are welcome too! They can be intimate with just a few close girlfriends and family, or they can be a larger celebration. Whatever you choose to do during a Mother Blessing, the focus is on nurturing the Mum-to-be!
