A Mother Blessing Ceremony, or Blessingway, is a wonderful way to serve and honor mothers.

Blessingways originate from Native American culture and were used to mark transitions in the life of women.

Unlike baby showers that often focus on gift giving, these ceremonies focus on honoring the expecting mother.
Sadly, our modern culture tends to lack opportunities to richly bless and enrich our loved ones during pregnancy, birth, and motherhood….
 

… A Mother Blessing Ceremony helps to fill that void while also providing an expecting mother what she needs most as labor and birth nears:

Connection, focused positivity & love ~ from her circle of support!


An important part of a Mother Blessing is to shower the mom with attention and focused positivity. This is done by surrounding the expectant mother by women that are very close to her.

A lovely mother I facilitated a blessing for shares her reflections…

“Plain and simple, Avira is incredible. Her attention to detail and gentle guidance is exactly the help I needed for my Mother Blessing which she facilitated. She incorporated all of my ideas and added her own thoughtful touches which brought everything together. Absolutely take the time to have a Mother Blessing if you are pregnant. It will fulfill you in a way that a baby shower cannot. It gives the ones you love the opportunity to support you in your birthing time in the most unique and meaningful way. Not sure where to start? Contact Avira! You won’t regret it!”

Mother Blessings also include time to eat and connect. If gifts are given they are mother focused and include giving her frozen meals, signing up to help with household chores, doula gift certificates, pajamas, baths salts, etc. The goal is to let her know that she will be given help, love, and support through birth and the postpartum period by her friends and family.

As a facilitator, I meet with the expecting mother and/or someone extremely close to her to plan the chosen elements of her ceremony, and to ensure the ceremony reflects her personal preferences. Any other ideas can be incorporated to create a personalized beautiful experience for the mother and her guests.
 

Create a lasting and deeply impacting experience for yourself or the expectant mother in your life! Consider a blessingway ceremony in addition to, in lieu of, or integrated with your baby shower.
