I found the answer. Mother Blessings: Honoring Women Becoming Mothers by my friend, Anna Stewart, provides ceremonies and rituals that connect you and celebrate you. Mother Blessings addresses the transition that new dads and moms face and suggests ways to move into parenthood gracefully.
I first met Anna years ago at my first Mother Blessing for a mutual friend. We shared our birth stories: hers was joyful and ecstatic; mine, frightening and full of fear of loss as we thought my daughter might be stillborn. Anna brought wisdom to me, and she can bring wisdom to you and other generations through the stories in her new book.
I hope you'll support passing this wisdom along...unto seven generations. It is easy to read, full of activities that involve all family members, and offers rituals for welcoming all new children into families.
While I did not have the guidance this book provides of honoring my daughter preparing for the birth of my grandson three years ago, I now know that it is never to late to welcome and honor her in her decision to have my grandchild. I plan to use it as a reference in planning a celebration for her, as a way to welcome her into our "mother's club".
This book touches a part of your heart that makes you glad to be a woman and a mother. It is an excellent compilation of ceremonies, many from other cultures that can enrich our lives.
I want to thank Anna, for writing such a powerful, meaningful and inspiring book.
