What’s a Blessingway?
A blessingway is a nurturing celebration which honors the transition
to motherhood. A blessingway concentrates giving support and love
the mama-to-be for her journey of birthing and becoming a mom.
For women, a blessingway is an opportunity to show spirit and
support for another woman we love. The mother can garner collective experiences
and power and use it to solidify her own strength to follow her new path.
Blessings and affirmations for birth and mothering are
bestowed upon the mother, and symbolic gifts or gifts which pamper
the mother during labor or postpartum are given.
It gives close friends and family the opportunity
to express their love, appreciation and support;
it gives the pregnant mother the opportunity to receive these blessings,
and to honor the scale of the changes that are taking place in her life.
