Practiced in many Native American cultures, the Blessingway
Ceremony was traditionally held to honor major life transitions. During
late pregnancy and to prepare for birth, an important rite of passage
for women, a woman's close female friends would host a Blessingway
Ceremony to honor her transition into motherhood. This initiation helps
to prepare a woman physically, mentally and spiritually for her journey
through birth and into motherhood. It allows her to strengthen her
social support, which she will need to nourish her postpartum, and to
deepen the bonds that she has with her community of support.
Do your own Blessingway
Ceremony: Invite a group of women friends/relatives for a relaxing time
to share food, pamper mom-to-be and honor the new baby who is making
the way to join the circle.
