Im not exactly sure, its not a baby shower, obviously Id feel terrible asking anyone to buy me gifts for my 4th baby, but they wanted to do something special because I am the only pregnant one out of our circle of friends, and this will probably be the last baby being born for any of us for quite a while. We are all making a dish to share, and doing a belly cast, but other than that Im not really sure what all takes place. Kinda why I posted this.

Blessingway ceremonies create a sacred and safe 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.



Birth is a key life passage for women. But modern culture has become preoccupied with the arrival of the baby-to-be and has lost touch with birth's profound impact on the expectant mother. While our most common birth preparations focus on getting women physically ready to give birth, the blessingway ceremony helps a woman to prepare mentally, emotionally, and spiritually for the work of birthing, and it opens her to her instinctive abilities, which will guide her as she steps into the role of mother.

I went to one. We ate, hung out, painted a ceramic bowl for her, gave her beads to make a necklace to focus on during labor. Then a lady did henna on her belly. I loved it and lament I probably will never have one.
