Baby Blessing Ways
Blessing way or mother’s blessing is a way of honouring, celebrating and empowering a mother before the birth of her child. This is an opportunity for a pregnant woman to join together with her friends and family members to honour her transition and journey into motherhood. She may already be a mother. This is a new journey and should be celebrated with each pregnancy.
A Blessing Way was traditionally a Navajo Ritual created to spiritually support and empower the new mother for her journey of birthing and motherhood. In recent times, this beautiful Ritual has been adapted as an alternative to Baby Showers, where the focus tends to be more on the gifts and the baby, rather than on the Mother and her experience.
We come together to hold sacred space for the mother to allow her to release any fears or anxieties and to fill her cup with sister love. We come together to gift her with our united power and warmth. To nourish and to nurture her. To let her know her sisters are here to be leant on in this time.
