Mother Blessings

A Mother Blessing is a celebration held during late pregnancy, as an alternative to a Baby Shower.

A traditional Baby Shower usually involves a few games, perhaps a quiz, some food, and the giving of baby-related gifts. In contrast, a Mother Blessing is centred around making the mother feel loved and nurtured by those closest to her.

At a Mother Blessing, the mother's closest female relatives and friends gather, share their love and support, and work to create a circle of sanctuary around her as she prepares to give birth.

As a Mother Blessing Celebrant, I will lead you and your guests through your Mother Blessing, creating a safe and nurturing space for everyone, and giving you a wonderful memory.

Introductory Cost: £125* + expenses
