The ultimate guide to hosting a Blessing Ceremony to celebrate and honour an expectant mother
Maybe you’re a doula, midwife or birth professional, wanting to create a sacred experience for your clients…
Or perhaps you’re a friend or family member, wanting to honour your loved one as they walk the path from Maiden to Mother...
Or maybe you’re pregnant yourself, and are searching for a way to mark the approaching transition in a way that feels real, genuine, and 100% *you*...
Whatever your reasons,
one thing’s for sure
you want to celebrate this rite of passage in a way that’s meaningful. That feels authentic. And that reflects the magic and majesty of motherhood
the comprehensive how-to guide for hosting a sacred, meaningful Blessing Ceremony to celebrate a soon-to-be mama.
So what exactly *is* a Mother Blessing Ceremony?
A Blessing Ceremony involves a circle of women coming together to support the expectant mother, surround her in love and wisdom, and empower her as she journeys forward.
Is it the same as a Blessingway?
No. The Dine people hold Blessingways to honour women in their tribe as they cross the threshold into motherhood. These ceremonies are handed down from ancient times and are held to be so special and sacred that as westerners, we know very little about how they unfold...
Instead, think of the ceremonies you’ll find within Blessing The Mother as a meaningful alternative to the usual parties and showers that have become commonplace in our culture.
How is a Blessing Ceremony different to a baby shower?
While modern baby showers are increasingly centred on games and gifts, a Blessing Ceremony is centred on the mama-to-be, and focuses on enhancing her connection to the women around her, the ancient lineage that precedes her, the wisdom of Mother Nature, as well as her own strength and intuition as she prepares to meet her baby…

“The ceremony was just what I wanted — simple and sacred...”
“I didn't have a mother blessing before my first baby and I really wish I had because it was just so deeply nourishing and I felt so held, supported and connected to my circle in the lead up to the birth of my second baby and in those hazy newborn weeks.
Talulah was just the perfect space creator and holder, setting up a beautiful circle and holding a ceremony that was just what I wanted, simple and sacred. My friends who had never been to a mother blessing before embraced the day and I got comments on how special and meaningful they found it.”
“Talulah’s Blessing Ceremonies are a divinely special experience…”
“I have been very fortunate to have Talulah facilitate a Mother Blessing for me when I was pregnant with both of my boys. For me, it was such a divinely special experience to have the space held for me in such a loving, nurturing, safe, sacred and joyful way.
I felt completely at ease under her guidance and the gentle way in which she structured the ceremony responding to my needs as an expectant Mumma, and to the circle of women present.
She was able to sensitively craft and weave the energy as it flowed on the day to make us all feel at ease with taking part in the ceremony.”
