What is a Mothers Blessing? It’s a celebration of love, connection, wisdom and support. A mother Blessing differs from a baby shower as it focuses on the mothers experience; of the journey they will go on, and how those around can support them. Family and friends form what will be your ‘village’ and empower you with words of wisdom and love. They will create and craft items that will give you strength throughout your labour and birth and beyond. Why have a Mothers Blessing? ❤ A Mothers Blessing is still relatively unheard of in most circles, so it is something different from the more mainstream baby shower. ❤ Bring the focus of pregnancy to you, and your experience. ❤ A mother blessing nurtures mothers and parents to be, but also to give tools to their friends and family; encouraging those who are special to you to think about your transition and the support you may require. Allowing them to offer wisdom and knowledge, love and connection. ❤ It boosts your oxytocin and warms your heart. This is really missing from western culture; wouldn’t it be lovely to see this returning to the mainstream. What will happen during the ceremony? If you choose to have a birth blessing, we will meet up beforehand to plan the intricacies and ensure everything is personalised; however typically we follow a basic structure. The ceremonies are typically split into 3 parts - we will gather around in a circle, set up beforehand decorated with flowers, crystals and anything you hold sacred, we will start with a circle ceremony which consists of introductions and storytelling, candle lighting, shared readings from me and your loved ones, a bead giving activity and the shared creation of a flower crown for you to adorn once finished. We would then move on to the physical nurturing section of the ceremony. This can include, but is not limited to; belly painting, massage – head, hand, feet, shoulders, foot soak/pedicure, hair brushing/braiding, We can include whatever you feel would serve you best. We end this part with a thread ceremony (This is my favourite part!) Finally, I will close the circle with a birth blessing reading and we will share food around the candles and socialise with one another, each guest will have been asked to bring a gift of nourishing food or drink so there should be quite a selection for everybody to enjoy as we reflect on the ceremony and chat about the future.
