What happens at a Mother’s Blessing Ceremony?

-The mother is nurtured and spoiled with love. A mother how is nurtured can nurture and love her baby more fully and freely.
-The pregnany mama is welcomed into the circle of mothers.
-Fears of birth and parenthood are attended to.
-The mother is supported in her emotional and spiritual preparation for birth.
-A sacred space is created for both the mother and the baby.
-It is led by a ceremony leader and lasts 2-3 hours.
-Mother’s close circle of female friends and family

A mother’s blessingway is not...

-A baby shower or a big party. If the mother wishes to have such a celebration it might be an idea to plan it for after the ceremony.
-A religious ceremony.

Important recommendations

-The mother shouldn’t be bothered with the arrangements for the ceremony. She is of course welcome to share her ideas and preferences is she so wishes.
-A host should be appointed to work with the DOUM and take responsibility for the organisational details.
-The location should be somewhere the mother feels comfortable and won’t be disturbed. Most probably the mother’s own home or somewhere similar.
