Blessing Jenny's baby by laying on of hands and blessing Jenny with a lavender water foot massage. Ahh....
blessingway for jenny
Isn't she both radiant and beautiful?
And what a lucky woman to have the support of all these warm and juicy women to welcome her into motherhood and to embrace her new little one with open arms. A very, very special community to be a member of, I must say.

So sweet! So in the blessing on the mother what makes this different than a regular baby shower? What else do you do?

Typically, there are no gifts for the baby. It's about the mother and her transition to motherhood. She wears a crown of flowers to symbolize her fertility in all it's glory. A necklace is made for her at the party which is infused with each guest's spoken prayers and blessings for her labor and delivery, to be worn during labor as a reminder of our strength and support. She is pampered with foot washing. Sometimes the hair is brushed and rearranged to symbolize her change of status. NO games are played. This is a serious, reverent event that feels meaningful to the mother. We have a meal that is nourishing to both mother and baby.
