Celebrant baby showers are beautiful ceremonies with family and friends to bless the mother’s bump with positivity, love and a safe arrival into the world.
Baby showers are popular in a number of countries as a way of celebrating the pending (traditionally a month or two in advance) or recent birth of a child. In some cultures the emphasis is upon celebrating the transformation of a woman into a mother. Typically a baby shower is arranged and hosted by a close friend rather than a member of the family.
The term shower is often assumed to mean that the expectant mother is “showered” with gifts. The custom, which is becoming increasingly popular in the UK, involves the presenting of gifts. Typical gifts include nappies, blankets, bottles, clothes, and toys.
It is not unusual for some family and friends to be a little uncomfortable with the idea of baby showers, particularly when held before the birth. It is considered by some to be bad luck to buy anything for the baby until it is born. A way around this would be to wait until after the baby is born, perhaps combining the event with welcoming and naming ceremony.
The ceremony allows for the opportunity to make a commitment to your soon to be born child, while celebrating the community spirit of family and sealing the relationship between the unborn child and his or her parents.
Naming ceremonies can be included in the ceremony too (at a significantly discounted rate).
By creating a unique baby shower & blessing ceremony incorporating elements that are special to you, For Life’s Journey and Tuirenn Hurstfield will help ensure your Baby Shower Ceremony is a perfectly personalised occasion. From the very first meeting, this ceremony will be focused, designed and constructed with only your new family in mind.
First you need to check the details of our Baby Shower & Blessing Ceremony options to see if you’d like to book us for before you get in touch. There are more details on these opposite.
When you first meet Tuirenn, you’ll just spend some time getting to know each other so he can find out more about you, and your wishes for your ceremony. You may already have lots of ideas, and that’s totally fine – we can work together to make sure it feels just right.
Once you’ve confirmed the booking, Tuirenn will get started on writing your ceremony straight away. With his experience he can make suggestions, and together you’ll create something that feels right for you. This will possibly include discussing reading options with family and friends you have chosen to take part.
As soon as possible before your date we’ll send you a script for the ceremony. You will have lots of input and your feedback is welcome. We’ll work together as much as you like until you’re 100% happy with the result.
On the day Tuirenn will conduct your ceremony as planned, delivering a personal and beautiful service for you and any family or friends you have involved. Afterwards you’ll get a beautifully bound copy of the ceremony script to reflect on in future years.
