Mother Blessings and Baby Namings are wonderful times to celebrate, but not the only times when you might seek some assistance. Pregnancy is a big time of change, which can feel quite wobbly, especially if it’s your first baby. It can be a challenging time for the father too. I offer support throughout the process, to help you navigate the ups and downs, and focus on what is really important: preparing a space to welcome a new soul into your family.
There are a lot of useful ideas and support for all stages of the pregnancy journey in my book, Birthrites.
Relax, recharge and connect with your baby. I use visualisation and creative techniques, so you don’t have to sit still for long periods. For individuals or couples. Please contact me if you are interested in setting up a small group.
Amidst all the practical preparations for starting a family or welcoming a new member, a Mother Blessing provides a time of deep contemplation and inner preparation for birth and the journey ahead. It’s a time to gather trusted friends around and gather the resources needed to approach birth in a calm and positive state of mind. Giving birth is a heroic deed – you deserve to be celebrated and blessed!
More people these days are opting to name and welcome their children in a non religious way. Baby Naming ceremonies give an opportunity to give thanks to life for the gift of a child, gather the community together to celebrate, and give support to the new parents. Many people appoint god parents or ‘guideparents’ to give a formal invitation to friends to get involved with their children.
“Thank you so much for a really beautiful ceremony on Friday. It was just what we had imagined, really special, and so pleased we were able to do it at the allotment. Harry seems to really feel at home here in Somerset already.” Sarah and Mark
Private healing sessions
You can also come to see me privately for support in pregnancy and birth preparation. This is especially helpful if you have experienced traumatic incidents in the past e.g. miscarriage or abortion, even if this was long ago. Healing sessions can clear the imprint of trauma from the womb, leaving the space clear for a new pregnancy.
