Mother Blessing Ceremonies are widely held in countries other than the UK, however with thanks to Emma Ashworth they are becoming more well known and held here.
WHAT IS A MOTHER BLESSING?
A mother blessing is a ceremony where women come together to nurture and support other women, commonly the mother to be.
The concept is that these women (be it sisters, grandmother, mother-in-law, friends, aunts etc) come together and connect on a spiritual and emotional level.
A mother blessing can be held anywhere;
at home (covid permitting)
via zoom albeit a little less intimate it still works the same.
At a ceremony we share hopes and wishes for the expectant mother as well as holding space and reverence for all attendees. There is some craft that can sometimes include Henna/body paint as well as sharing pregnancy/birth affirmations, thread ceremony, circle ceremony, candles crystals, sharing of food and more!
For and alternative more intimate coming together of energy and power of women this is a great way to celebrate the mother to be.
Ceremonies last 3 hours (celebrants time is 4 hours to help set up and pack away)
