  • What is a Blessingway?
    Blessingways are traditionally Native American ceremonies during which preparation is made for an upcoming major life event. For pregnancies, the focus is put on the mother-to-be rather than the baby on the way. The birth of a baby truly is a miracle and definitely a reason to celebrate. But often times, the importance of the process itself is overlooked.

  • I think that showers feel more general. Blessingways are more personal and ceremonial.
    Showers are silly and loud. Blessingways are reverent and bliss.
    I've been to many more blessingways than showers, I guess that's why, lol!
