Mother Blessing Ceremony

What is a Mother Blessing?

A Mother Blessing is a beautiful ancient ceremony borrowed from the Navajo people of Native America, honouring a woman's rite of passage into Motherhood. 


It differs vastly from a baby shower; where the focus is mainly on baby. A Mother Blessing involves a gathering of the Mother's most trusted family and friends who sit in the power of circle to 'hold' the Mother. Here, she is offered love, support and blessings for the transition ahead, as well as the safety to be witnessed in the 'letting go' of any fears, worries or doubts she might have about her upcoming birth and mothering experience. The ceremony helps the woman to prepare for this rite of passage emotionally and spiritually.


"A woman's birth experience is about who she is, it's about who she becomes, it defines her, it unmakes her, and it re-makes her, it unravels her, and it puts her together again." - Hannah Dahlen

Having experienced the power of this ancient tradition myself, both as the hostess, as well as the Mother, my intention in holding your Mother Blessing Ceremony, is to bring back sacredness in this rite of passage and for you to feel so deeply held and supported by your community - not just for birth, but for Motherhood.
