    Way Better than a Baby Shower!!!

    Years ago I was invited to a Blessingway. I had never heard of this sort of ceremony. It was a most incredible experience. Honoring and pampering the soon to be mother with wonderful, meaningful rituals and activities. This book explains exactly how to plan and create the perfect Blessingway for the expectant mom.
