MOther Blessing Ceremony
Most ceremonies start with an introduction of the guests, possibly an herbal foot bath and floral crown, while everyone listens to words that encourage and remind us how sacred motherhood is. We include light snacks throughout, refilling when needed. Fear releasing ceremony, affirmations and bead offering usually come next. Followed by making prayer/birth flags, henna or cast. I try my best to customize the ceremony to you while remaining true to deeply held beliefs and traditions of mother circles. Please only invite those women who support and strengthen you as a woman and mother. This is not a baby shower and there is no obligation to include those people who make you questions or doubt yourself. This is a moment of greatness and sacred to your journey into motherhood, whether the 1st or 10th time. I will conclude the ceremony with a prayer or poem to honor the mother.

birth plan assistance
Knowing what to include in your birth plan is an important part of having your voice heard in your birth. Let me help you narrow down your choices with evidence based information and gather them in a concise manner your provider will respond positively to. This service includes a 1 hour consultation where we go over your family's wishes, various procedures you could face in labor, and how to speak so that you're heard in an environment you're not accustomed to. I will gather your preferences and save as a pdf file. You will receive an email within 72 hours of our meeting, barring any doula or student midwife births. Additional consult time can be purchased at $50/hour.
