Mother Blessing Ceremonies
To honor and Bless the mother
A Mother Blessing ceremony is a gathering of the mother-to-be and her closest women family and friends to create a sacred bond of love, support and power as she prepares for the birth and the experience of motherhood. Each ceremony is unique to the mother and any rituals or traditions she is called to. The circle of women initiates a support team in the time of transition and through the powerful experience of birth. Because when the baby is born, a mother is also born, and she too needs to be received, nurtured and supported on her journey. A Mother Blessing is for a first-time mom or a fifth-time time - it doesn't matter how many children she has birthed, each experience is different and sacred.
What To Expect
We begin with a 1 hour consultation to determine the intention of the ceremony, and then plan logistics of time and place, guest list, specific activities and rituals and anything else to be included in the ceremony.
