This moving ceremony creates a space to provide deep and heartfelt support to the mother-to-be as she prepares to birth. Gifts, affirmations, stories, and prayers may be offered to the mother. Food, massage, decorating the belly, dance or yoga can also be offered. Everything is focused on showing the mother that her community loves her and what she is doing is amazing.
As your Blessingway host, I will meet with you at least once to understand your needs and identify the community of women who you love and trust. I will then help this community throw you a Blessingway. I will make sure every detail of this event is taken care of while empowering the women in your community to commit to mothering you during this crucial time. The husband or partner of the mother and any children that are part of the immediate family are also invited to attend.
