My Mama Blessing and Birth Space, updated with before and after pics

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I originally wanted to make a thread to cover both my blessing and my final birth space, but the birth space isn't quite done. Hopefully it will be before I go into labor! It just needs some finishing touches, but I am a perfectionist that way. I will update the thread in the next couple days if I get it finished and manage to get pictures taken, but for the meantime, here is my blessing post for those that are interested.

We decided to have it in the birth space, so it could be a space blessing as well as a mama blessing, so you are getting to see the room, but then my plan is to move all the altar stuff to a different location, and then of course the pool needs to be set up, so things are going to be rearranged a bit. I also have some really funny before and after pictures of what a disaster it was before I started, so hopefully I will get that all caught up and posted.

ETA: Adding the Official Transformation Post Link. Things have been rearranged to get it ready for the birth, so I posted the before and after pictures. There are also some pics of my birth bead necklace.

What a beautiful space! It looks like you had a very happy, calming blessing. You definitely deserve that.

Oh, man, I want some of that cake!! I love your birthing room, too. What room of the house is this normally for you? Very cool!

Thanks mamas! We have a split level, which I honestly don't like, but it turned out good for this! The bottom rooms in this plan are thought of as family rooms or rec rooms. Up to getting ready for the blessing, it was pretty much a playroom. For awhile, it became a throw everything in there room. You will see when I post the other pictures what wreck it was!

Wow, that must have felt great to have all of those women there to support you! What a great blessing. Congrats, mama.

What a beautiful sacred space you turned that into. (hopefully not alone, lol) Love the prayer flags and tapestries.

Hope your birth is just as sacred and beautiful. (so close!)

Yet again I am soo jelious i would love to be able to set up my space like that, but I am birthing in our living room. So alas I have a birth alter set up, but the rest will have to wait until the day of the birth.
