A blessingway is a special celebration to encourage and pamper the soon-to-birth mama. It is a gathering of women you count as your closest friends, the ones who share your joy in your pregnancy, believe in your ability to give birth, and will be keeping you in their thoughts and prayers as you go through labour, birth and those precious first weeks with your new baby.
In our culture today, there are so few ways to honor the mother to be. We make an attempt during baby showers, but for the most part this turns into a simple showering of gifts for the baby and does nothing for the mother in terms of the rite of passage she is about to go through. This sacred time in the mother's life deserves more than gifts.
At a blessingway, the focus is on encouraging and empowering the woman herself, as she is the one who will work to bring the baby safely earth-side.
I can help you bring together those special women in your life for an unforgettable time together. your blessingway can include: birthing necklace making, bracelet string activity to connect women, special candles, belly casting, henna painting, foot and hand massage, sharing of songs, telling of stories.
Fee for a customized 2-4 hours blessingway: $180-$300 (includes all materials for the different activities selected).
