My Mother Blessing!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Hi Mummas 

I had my Mother Blessing today and it was wonderful!

We told birth stories, shared blessings/prayers, had henna done and at the end i gave everyone a rose candle to take home and light when i go into labour.

I just wanted to share some pictures of this afternoon :)



700 These are the little bundles that had a thank you note and the candle for my labour.




700 The tent space we created out of blanket and sheets :) Was like a circus tent!




700 This is my 34.1 week shot!




700 Threading my birth necklace




700 My birth shrine


700 The bare bump! Albi like the henna and wiggled lots!!






700 The finished product!! About 5 of my friends added and helped draw the henna on!




Anyhooo I just wanted to share :) Im so so so happy to enter my birth in this headspace and am very excited!

I also got given hand made mama cloth, wheat packs etc all made from scratch! (The wheat was even home grown, hand picked and put together especially for me!) One friend also got me psotnatal herbs for healing :))

Beautiful! I'm so happy for you to have such a positive atmosphere to go on from- after your shower wasn't so positive. :)
