My SIL has offered to organise a mother blessing for me!
I am so excited as I have never been to one and the first will be my own!
We are having a tea party with a few blessingway activities included. Some of these activities include, each person bringing a bead for me to string onto a necklace to wear during labour if I feel like it.. and also bringing something that I can put on the wall in my birth space to encourage me during labour. This could be a piece of writing, a picture, some scripture, a poem, a word.. anything to remind me to be of strong body and spirit and that I am just one of millions of women who have given birth through history.
I also thought we could make flags (like a bunting) to hang in my room and each person could write or draw something on the flag.
I am SO excited!
A friend is going to hook me up with a henna belly artist too! WOO! Look at this gorgeous hootie owl belly below. I have had a thing for owls since this dream I had just prior to conceiving.
