"Just as a tree grows best when anchored firmly in the earth, so can a pregnant mother feel strong and capable when supported by a sisterhood of nurturing friends." -April Lussier-

Mother Blessing

A Mother Blessing is a wonderful ritual for the mother-to-be. It celebrates her upcoming birth of woman into motherhood or for experienced mothers - another pregnancy. It can be an alternative to a traditional baby shower . A Blessingway is an unique way to honor the mother.

The activities and elements of the ceremony should be meaningful to the mother being blessed, so activities may be added or left out according to your needs.

Activities include

Creating Birthing Bracelet or Necklace – this will serve as a reminder of all the love, support, and blessings you have received for your pregnancy, birth, baby, and life-long journey of motherhood.

Belly painting or belly casting

Pampering - an aromatherapy foot bath, a hand and foot massage, pedicure & manicure, hair adornment are acts of service to pamper and honor to the mother-to-be.

Candle Lighting - during this part of the ceremony, each guest is given an unlit candle. They will take this candle home with them and will light it when they get the call from the phone tree that she is in labor, sending her strength, support, and positive thoughts.

Creating prayer flags

Sisterhood ceremony

Creating birthing shirt

Guided meditation

Celebration Feast

Birth story circle

Pregnancy and birth poetry

And much more.

Thank u so much for everything u did for my baby girl and I - your organisation, your beautiful words, your gifts and energy. U made it one of the most beautiful days I've ever had - and my blessingway was more amazing than I ever imagined. I'll never forget today and how special it was xoxo."

"A blessingway is the most magical way to commence the last few months of birth. It not only grounds Mama & baby, but all that are involved. A special and spiritual day, the warmth and love of beautiful ladies is a must for any Mama-to-be. Let yourself go as Helena organises everything for you from the invitations to special functions of each of the individual ladies present. It's more than a blessing, it's beautiful memories made as you make your way toward a blessed birth. Every Mama deserves a blessingway filled with love in a safe and secure place where she is able to let go. I can't thank Helena enough for such a precious day, I was more than surprised and would definitely do it all over again if blessed with more children."

Thank you for the beautiful blessing ceremony yesterday - the words were so lovely and it was so calming after such a stressful week.
It was a pleasure to meet you and I think it is wonderful that Shirley has you to help her and guide her through the end of her journey to motherhood.
Kindest regards

"Thank you Helena for organising me the most special mothers blessing ceremony. I will never forget it and I will tell Jack all about it when he is older. I didn't really know what to expect when you first mentioned the idea but it by far exceeded all my expectations. For anyone pregnant who wants to celebrate their pregnancy and the transition into motherhood beyond the typical 'baby shower' where the emphasis is more on cute baby clothes and games, this is something really special. I was pampered by each of the women who attended and I received beads from loved ones around the world to make a birthing necklace which I wore when giving birth to Jack, knowing that I had the support of all my friends and family. It was simple and yet so heartfelt!"

Thanks again, love, Diana x
