Mother Blessings

A Pregnancy and Motherhood Support

For thousands of years, women have come together to celebrate rites-of-passages, such as menarche, marriage, and birth. Village communities have always made a big deal out of these important life transitions and marked them with a special event (genius!). Let’s learn from those who have gone before us and bring this back to our communities!

In contrast to a baby shower, which primarily focuses on the new baby, a mother blessing is focused on the mama. A mother blessing a two-to-three-hour ceremony-like gathering that aims to empower, encourage, celebrate, and nurture mama.

Using a women’s circle format, a mother blessing uses intentional sharing, activities and practices to saturate mama in love, warmth and positivity. Following the circle time, we feast together and have some more fun. Mama is sure to leave feeling cherished, remembered and blessed—and more prepared for her upcoming birth.

Why yes! A mother blessing is for mamas of all ages, regardless of how many children she’s already had.

Does it matter what type of delivery a mama will be having?

Absolutely not. Any birth is a big deal! Mother blessings are for anyone regardless of what type of delivery she’ll be having.

Is there a best time in pregnancy to have a mother blessing?
