Mother's Blessing Ceremony


A Mother's Blessing, is a celebration of pregnancy and becoming a mother that focuses more on the mother than the baby. During a mother's blessing, a group of her closest friends and family will come together and honour the new mother and  pregnancy and journey into motherhood. They will offer words of wisdom around preparing for birth and postpartum and often include a small ceremony to mark the occasion.

Historically, women would gather together to empower and support one another as they stepped into the role of bearing and raising children. This rite of passage into motherhood was tribe life, deeply ingrained, passed down from culture to culture, generation to generation, and woman to woman. In First Nations tradition, (Dine Navajo) a ceremony called a Blessingway created space  to come together as a support circle for the expecting mother, and bless the way ahead for her. It is a web woven of the most trusted and cherished women in her life. Those who will provide a loving place where she can explore the challenges and joys that lie before her as she approaches her journey into motherhood.

While still gathered in a sacred circle, the blessingway flows into the rituals, things such as weaving a web of yarn around each guest’s wrist forming individual yet connected in spirit bracelets that symbolize the umbilical cord of the baby connected to the mother. There are numerous beautiful rituals that can take place during this facet of the ceremony. Following the rituals of the ceremony, the focus is shifted to pampering and adorning the mother to be. The mama is asked to have a seat in her “throne” so to speak. Each woman of support chooses a way to honor her, which can include brushing or styling her hair, adorning her with floral crowns, painting her belly with Henna and/or creating a beautiful plate of the nourishing food to offer to her. You can offer blessings to in the form of birthing prayer flags, jewelry, candles for labor, and messages which she can read while birthing.

Postpartum Ceremony "Closing the Bones”

This beautiful ceremony symbolically and energetically acknowledges an event of significance in a woman’s life and the opening of anew cycle and the closing of another. A bridge from one time in her life into another woman/mother to be - mother.

It originated for the Maya K’iche peoples of Guatemala and Mexico who know and consider pregnancy to be a sacred and special event.They see pregnancy and childbirth as similar to the sowing and harvest of their land. That the land must be

happy for the harvest to be abundant. The pregnant woman is like the earth at the moment of sowing (emerging), for that reason both are treated with care and formality as both are sacred.

During the birthing process it is said that the woman opens like a channel, her body and her spirit open. In this condition, the woman needs the protection of her spirits, her family, the closest women in her community; therefore, during childbirth she cannot be left alone "if she is lonely an evil spirit can come and harm her and the child”. It is known that the mother moves from a hot energy condition during her pregnancy, labour and and delivery to a cold energy condition (postpartum). Even in Ayurveda and Chinese medicine, the mother body energy shifts to an unbalance state where she becomes very vulnerable to the "bad airs" that enter from the uterus. Therefore, it is so necessary for her close with the binding practice (rebozo or bengkung belly binding) 5-8days after birth. This allows the mother to be protected from the bad airs/ spirits that can manifest in the body as cold and postpartum depression.

40 days of rest and abstinence is also practiced, particularly to let the bleeding stop as well as give the body and spirit time to feel ready to close this very transformative stage of the mothers life (pregnancy and childbirth).
