A Blessingway is a spiritual alternative to a traditional baby shower. In our culture, much of our baby mania revolves around fashion, the latest baby products and nursery design. We gather for baby showers and open gift after gift, often letting the tradition blind us to the very reason we have gathered…to shower the mother and baby with enough love and support to carry them through their relationship together. However, in recent times, the beautiful ritual of holding a Blessingway has been adapted as an alternative to baby showers, where the focus is on the mother, her experience, and the sacred (ancient!) occasion of birthing.
