Blessing Ways and Baby Showers

A baby shower or blessing way provides an opportunity for a pregnant woman to join with her close women friends and family to mark and celebrate her transition into motherhood. Unlike a Baby Shower, which tends to be focused on the imminent arrival of the baby, a Blessing Way is a sacred gathering centered upon the pregnant woman, giving her focused, nourishing attention and support.

Blessing Ways often include a sharing circle where participants bring small gifts and heart-felt wishes for the mum-to-be, and participate in creative and nurturing activities. It is a space where the mum-to-be can share her hopes, fears and dreams and feel supported and motivated to go on into her birthing time. Obviously, there’s an opportunity to combine the two approaches – it’s all about the mum!

Further information about Blessing Ways, their Navajo (native American) origins, and some tips, ideas and activities you might to include in a Blessing Way can be found here.
