A conventional baby shower might not be for you, and that's totally fine. One of the sweetest—and most spiritual—ways to shower a mom-to-be with affection before baby arrives is by having a mother's blessing.
Instead of having the complexities of a shower (think: coming up with games to play and sitting down to open dozens and dozens of gifts), a mother's blessing simply celebrates mom.
A mother's blessing is meant to inspire and encourage the expectant mom just before she gives birth to baby.
What happens at mother's blessing? It's very ceremonial—guests may be asked to bring a few things such as a poem, song, prayer, or scripture about pregnancy, birth or motherhood; or a bead to symbolize fertility, birth or motherhood.
Typically at a mother's blessing, an altar or adorned space is made for the pregnant woman and her guests to gather, with the mom-to-be in the middle—after all, she's the focus of the event! Once everyone has gathered, you do various activities in sisterhood to support and celebrate the new mother to be. These can be things she will use through the laboring process or leading up the the birth to encourage her and cheer her on.
Labor can be tough, so it's important that mom can feel the strength of her friends and family with her as she welcomes baby into the world.
