One way or another I’ve found it a bit difficult to connect to this baby - it happened a bit earlier than I expected, we’ve had a lot of stress through the pregnancy, and I have been running around madly after Grace - until recently, some days I forgot I was pregnant altogether!
I wondered whether a blessingway might be a good way to connect and “bond” with the baby before it’s born - just wanted to find out a bit more really. Is it the done thing to do your own, or should you wait and hope that someone does one for me!
What does one actually do? Food? Activities?
Also, is it a “women only” thing? I can’t imagine my husband enjoying it (suspect he would be rolling his eyes!), but if Grace and I are there I wouldn’t want him to feel excluded. Having said that, not sure how comfortable I’d be with other blokes around!
Is it affiliated to a particular religion? I’m happy to get involved in “secular” rituals, but not overly keen on pinching the religious rituals of other faiths….
When is an appropriate time to have one? I’m guessing I’m in the last month now….
