1. What is a Blessingway or Mother Blessing?
Before you decide to call your next shower a Blessingway, it helps to know what you're talking about.

Instead of focusing on games and presents, a Blessingway is a gathering to create support for the new mom as she prepares for birth and motherhood. The activities are centered around honoring the mom as a person and creating sources of encouragement during her labor.

The vibe is a bit bohemian and earthy, but could definitely be altered to fit your personal style. Likewise, although rooted in Navajo tradition, the act of blessing the mom can be centered around any faith (or lack-there-of). The main purpose of the gathering is to celebrate and instill confidence in the expectant mother.
