If you’ve ever heard of the Baby Shower, you know it’s a party organized for the expectant mother to receive gifts for her and her baby. We use the term Shower, “shower”, to refer to this shower of gifts.

If what you are looking for is a less consumerist dimension, more intimate and full of emotion, then you can give or treat yourself to a Blessingway.

This is an ancient tradition that is inspired by Navajo rites of passage linked to motherhood, but which is now widespread in the world: the woman waiting for her creature is surrounded by all the women who are dearest to her and honored for the gift of Life she is giving to the world.

She is embraced with her love and good wishes for all good things, she is given strength in view of childbirth, she is made to feel that she can count on that feminine network that every woman legitimately needs during birth and in the following months.

The setting, full of softness and warmth, provides to sit on the floor with towels, cushions, candles, flowers … you place yourself in a circle, creating a magical and sacred space.

The invited guests can create at the moment, all together, a special gift that is infused with their affection, such as a blanket or a necklace of childbirth.

You talk, you are moved, you renew your bond.
We drink and toast, pamper ourselves with nutritious and delicious food (catering service is also available on request).

The Blessingway is often fixed in the third trimester of pregnancy taking care to book it in advance and never too close to the end date.

The organizers take care of everything: from the personalization of the event – dedicated to the woman, always starting from who she is and what she wants – to the contact of the guests who, if requested, are involved in the preparations, even more so when the Blessingway is given as a surprise gift.

Kalila Community spaces are available to organize your Blessingway!
