Mother Blessing

“A woman is a full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.”
-Diane Mariechild

Mother Blessing Ceremonies celebrate pregnancy, birth and motherhood by creating a safe and sacred environment where a mother-to-be can explore the challenges and joys that lie before her as she approaches birthing and mothering. Surrounded by the most important women in her life, she gains a sense of power, confidence, and support that will help her rise to motherhood and walk her new path.

Giving birth is a key life passage for women and a Mother Blessing, also known as a Blessingway*, celebrates a woman’s transition into motherhood. Participants honor the pregnant mother as a woman and as a friend, blessing her way into child birth and caring for a new child.

*(A Blessingway is adapted from an ancient Navajo ceremony)
