By the end of Blessingways I was moved to tears over and over again. I loved all the twists and turns of the possible choices and I loved the women's stories woven throughout the entire work.

Phyllis Klaus
Childbirth is a special time in life that needs to be acknowledged, and Shari Maser offers a thoughtful way to honor this momentous rite of passage. Whether a Blessingway is simple or more elaborate, she shows how to infuse the occasion with love, spirit, and caring support that the mother-to-be will carry with her long afterward.

    'Blessingways' is an amazing resource!

    Shari Maser's book is a thoroughly enjoyable and helpful resource for anyone planning a celebration or a ceremony for a mother-to-be. Her writing is articulate, her information is both creative and comprehensive, and her ideas are inspirational. It was a pleasure to read about other women's experiences with Blessingways, and I look forward to planning many events using Shari Maser's book as a guide.
