Mother Nourish Session
A Mother Nourish Session is a one-time visit that focuses on filling the mother’s cup. It’s a 2hr session focusing on mental, physical and emotional support during the postpartum period including tea, snacks, bodywork, peer support, discussion and comfort products from New Mama Columbus. Mothering is draining and tireless work. The mother needs to be nourished so she can nourish and nurtured so she can nurture. Infants are biologically programmed to absorb the nurturing the mother is receiving as well. Our infants and our mothers need their village back.

Mother Blessing Ceremony
A Mother Blessing Ceremony is an alternative or addition to the modern day “baby shower.” A Mother Blessing is derived from and pays homage to practices from other cultures such as the Navajo and their Blessingway ceremonies. The focus of a Mother Blessing is The Mother instead of the baby and the gifts the baby receives. The Mother is “showered” with blessings, positivity and affection. She is reminded of the strengths she already possesses. She is encouraged on the strengths she is yet to know. The focus is on ritual and connection, both of which are essential to new motherhood. The mother’s core support group is incorporated for her special blessings. A blessing ceremony usually takes place sometime during her 3rd trimester.
