Sing your baby out

It is well known that vocalising during birth is of great help to connect your body-mind-soul system and facilitate the actual birth process.

And along with this connection, revealing the power of the duality for an unforgettable experience. The main purpose is to make women strong in their confidence in their bodies and in their ability to give life with the help of voice, sensuality and creativity. The skills acquired will allow you to find your own birth song.

Mother rising: the blessingway journey into motherhood (Opening ceremony before birth)

from €130

Baby Showers are just about celebrating the new baby coming soon.
What about celebrating this woman and her transition into a new phase of her life such as motherhood with a ceremony? One more shade of interpretation of this ceremony might be seen in this concept: mother’s womb has been closed for 9 months, and so her emotions. When we are not pregnant every month our bleeding reminds us of our ciclicity: the dead cells of our endometrium are detached and come out with all our emotions kept inside ourselves. Some people call it premenstrual syndrome. Imagine now that you have kept all these emotions closed for 9 months and with the birth of your child a new woman will be born and with them a lot of emotions will flow out of you. It is a new opening to the world after so many months of closure to nurture your baby inside your belly. This process takes time and deep understanding.

The mother rising ceremony will gather your closest friends to go slowly and deeply into recognizing the power of what is going to happen in your life, acknowledging its meaning and guiding you to the opening phase of motherhood.

Rebozo closing bones ceremony after 40 day from the childbirth

from €150 - done by two people

This ceremony is performed after 6 weeks from childbirth and it is performed by two people using Rebozo (traditional Mexican scarf). In a very relaxing environment, usually with candle, soft music, after a bath and a massage (these details are customizable), while you are lying, your body will be wrapped into several Rebozos in order to “close your bones”.

The philosophy behind this ceremony follows the concept of the “mother rising” one: you have opened to the world giving birth, when you feel like it’s time to close again, not anymore in symbiosis with your baby and become a single person again, then you might want to celebrate this new phase of your life with this ritual.
