You're invited to join Birthways Family Birth Center and Sarasota Mothercare for our 2018 Community Mother Blessing.
What is a community mother blessing? It is a special time for local women to circle together for support, encouragement and nurturing during pregnancy. These special events allow us to collectively honor the personal and shared journeys of becoming a mother.
Celebrating pregnancy and birth with a mother blessing transforms the sometimes scary and isolating childbearing year into a time for connection, positivity, and renewal. As the saying goes, it takes a village. This time of pampering, uplifting each-other, and learning together is a beautiful gift to share. No matter what your birthing plans or what number child this is, every mother can be honored and blessed on this journey.
*** Mother blessings are inspired by the Navajo people's sacred ceremony and rite-of-passage, the Blessingway. While we're thankful for their inspiration, we respect and recognize that the ownership of the term Blessingway and their ceremony is wholely theirs.
* Please leave children, even newborns, at home out of respect and appreciation for all.
