Anyone had oe? Anyone been to one? I know some of my local mommas had one recently and I really want one.  There will be no baby shower for baby boy #5.

I've also never had a baby shower, so maybe that's why? Lol

A baby shower is all about gifts for the baby, the blessingway is a ritual about the mom and the birth and ONLY includes women.  Henna tattoos, belly casts, stringing a birth necklace of beads brought by friends, are some of the things done at a blessingway

I really really want to do this but I'm afraid my friends will think it is stupid.

Nice idea. My friends would all think I was crazy. But if I had enough natural minded women to come I would love this.

Not true for everyone  :o)  ....for us it is all about celebrating a new life.

We chose to do "meet the baby" instead of a shower.  We included male and female members of the family...

I'm not the kind of mama who would ever think to exclude men (especially my DH) from a celebration of our baby's life.

With my second we did a mini blessinf way i guess you would say. I am christain, sowe made it our own, it was very small and intimate, not about gifts or anything.

With my third we were.planning one for.several of us, but the mom whose house we were planning on having it at had her baby earlier than she expected so that fell through
