Birthing Blessing Ceremony
What is a Birth Blessing?
A Birth Blessing Ceremony is a beautiful alternative to a baby shower (although you can certainly have both). The focus of this ceremony is to empower and support the pregnant person as they journey into the birth and onwards into parenthood.
Time is spent surrounded by your community, as they share positive stories about birth and parenting, allowing you to release any remaining fears you may be holding onto. This beautiful ceremony is completely customized to suit the needs and spiritual beliefs of the birthing person.
Stories from around the world:
The mother blessingway was a sacred spiritual ceremony and ritual specific to the Navajo/ Din'e to celebrate a women's transition into motherhood. We respect the sacredness of the term "Blessingway" performed by the Navajo people to celebrate rites of passage that occur throughout the entire life cycle, and not only the passageway into motherhood. We acknowledge and are mindful of the context that we give these ceremonies and are considerate of our purpose and intent in undertaking them.
