Mother's Blessing Events
Premiered for our practice by Jade Chiu, we now offer Mother's Blessing Event planning services. These events are a beautiful way to celebrate the beginning of a mother’s journey and chance for her friends to send her into the birth feeling fully pampered and supported. Unlike a traditional baby shower, where gifts are purchased for the baby, a Mother Blessing is all about nurturing the mother-to-be and celebrating motherhood. At a mother's blessing event the mother is surrounded by her most trusted friends and family (typically all women), and is affirmed and supported as she prepares herself mentally, emotionally and spiritual for her upcoming birth. Motherhood, birth, and pregnancy are celebrated. Sometimes guests will give the mother beads that are associated with their prayers, hopes and blessings for the mother and then the beads can be strung together into a necklace for the mother to wear during labors, sometimes guests decorate prayer flags or affirmations for the mother to use in her birth space, sometimes mom's enjoy getting their belly painted or being pampered in other fun ways. There are any number of activities that can be planned and enjoyed but the goal is for the mother to leave feeling supported, nurtured and pampered, ready to embrace her journey into motherhood.
We will meet with you or whomever is hosting, to discuss your vision and begin planning. Our general pricing includes materials, and either set up and tear down or attendance and hosting. Please contact us for a la carte pricing of things like belly casting and painting, herbal foot baths, and affirmation/prayer flags.
