A Mother’s Blessing Ceremony, is all about nurturing, honoring and supporting the mother to be. This ritual is derived from the Navajo People’s sacred ceremony called the Blessing Way, which celebrates a woman’s rite of passage into motherhood.
If you are looking for a special and unique present to give to a dear pregnant friend, or why not: to yourself, then you have come to the right place. You are worthy of celebrating!
I have been doing ceremonies for years, such as wedding ceremonies, baby blessing ceremonies and goddess circle ceremonies. So when 3 different mothers asked me to perform a mother’s blessing ceremony; I knew it was time to be of service in this way. It just makes senses, since I am a Minister/Priestess, I love everything about celebrating women, and to celebrate motherhood in this way is so sacred. I am a mother of 4, and I know first had how important it is to feel supported during pregnancy.
I believe that every woman deserves to be celebrated as she enters into the next phase of her life as a mother. The transition from being pregnant to becoming a new mom can be difficult at times, so it is important for us to support each other through these transitions with love and compassion. This ritual will help you connect with your sacred feminine energies as well as allowing you to receive blessings from the women in your life.
A Mother Blessing involves a gathering of the mother-to-be’s most trusted friends and family, who sit in the power of a sacred circle and share amongst one another. Traditionally it is a woman-only gathering and may include her mother, sisters, aunts, daughters, best of friends, mentors — anyone she respects, looks up to or values. This is not done during the baby shower, this is a separate more intimate event. Usually takes place 4-6 weeks before the due date.
This ceremony is a great way to assist the mother to be, preparing her for the birth, emotionally, spiritually and mentally. She feels ‘held’ and supported by those she loves and respects, which also assists her to release any fears or blockages she may be feeling.
A Mother Blessing creates a beautiful atmosphere of peace, love and nurturing the mother to be. Thus, creating peace of mind and a sense of community, like the saying goes “it takes a village to raise a child”, this is the first step. Assisting the mother to be, so she can have the strength, love and support of her chosen village. When women come together, great things happen.
I want to make it easy for you, because during the last 4-6 weeks of your pregnancy you want it to be easy; trust me, I’ve been there. Instead of you having to plan everything yourself, worrying about forgetting things, or who will say what, and what order will the activities go; I do it all for you!
We will meet up once before the blessing ceremony for a consultation, then I will show you a few poems, prayers and blessings that you can choose from; to make it unique to you. We will go over the different activities and create the intimate blessing ceremony exactly how you would like it to be.
Making sure everything flows smoothly and helping you have a beautiful, effortless sacred Mother Blessing Ceremony that you will cherish forever.
I will show up 30 minutes early to your chosen location to set the stage and clear the energy of the space with some a sacred smudge (optional).
“Natalia performed a Mother Blessing Ceremony for me and I could not be happier about how it went. If you’ve never heard of a Mother Blessing Way you need to look it up and see for yourself how amazing it is! In today’s busy world mothers are often not able to take the time to care for themselves, or can feel quite isolated, overwhelmed and alone. The Mother Blessing Ceremony is a chance to surround yourself with the supportive women in your life and celebrate the power of becoming a mother. It creates a community of women that can help nurture you during this challenging time of change. Natalia made sure that I didn’t have to do much at all for the event- the idea is that I get to fully relax and enjoy the day while everyone takes care of me! When you are 8 months pregnant this is about the best way to do anything. Natalia was so sweet and lovely, and really bonded well with all my friends and family. She has the ability to adjust to each situation as it comes, and truly listens to each person and helps everyone feel heard and understood. She radiates happiness and love and is simply inspiring to be around. Even the most traditional of my family members truly enjoyed the mother blessing and came away with a fresh perspective on motherhood- and with lots of positive ideas of how to support me going forward. I feel so positive today about the future, and so happy to have connected with my friends and family before the baby comes. I highly recommend that all mothers-to-be consider having a Mother Blessing Ceremony with Natalia. It fills up your own cup so you can feel strong and supported when entering this new phase of your life. Thank you Natalia!”
