What is it?
During pregnancy an individual is not only gestating and preparing for the birth of their baby but the birthing of themselves as a mother. A mother blessing ceremony is the equivalent of a spiritual baby shower which honours the mother-to-be and her baby.
An ancient ritual that celebrates and honours the mother as she journeys into this rite of passage. It allows the mother to be held, nurtured and supported by her sisters, reminding her all that mothers need and deserve to be nourished for thriving life. What transpires when they feel the web of love woven around her them is that they feel a deep sense of safety, tenderness and empowerment to fully embrace their role as a mother.
To be held with reverence and unconditional love on the journey into motherhood, whether this is their first or fifth child, is what every birthing mother deserves.
A blessing celebrates the mother and the baby but also all the mothers who have ever given birth, those raising children and all those that may not have birthed a baby but nurture our communities and Earth.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The two hour ceremony includes:
Ancient Rituals (e.g. foot bath for mother-to-be)
Songs and Poetry
The Mother Blessing is typically held towards the end of pregnancy - around 35-38 weeks and is usually an intimate gathering with around 2-15 close friends and family.

" A circle of women may just be the most powerful force known to humanity. If you have one, embrace it. If you need one, seek it. If you find one, for the love of all that is good and holy, dive in. Hold on. Love it up. Get Naked. Let them see you. Let
them hold you. Let your reluctant tears fall. Let yourself rise fierce and love gentle. You will be changed. The very fabric of your being will be altered by this, if you allow it. Please, please allow it. " ~ Jeanette LeBlanc
