 Rites of Passage

Before or after the birth of your baby, you may wish to have a traditional Baby Shower or a Blessingway.   Belly casting and scrapbooking parties are other ways to involve friends and family in the excitement.  It's a way for the people in your life to offer their support, offering their good luck wishes and blessings on the new family.

You might also consider a *coming out* party a few weeks after the baby is born, to introduce the new member of the community.

For yourself, spiritual rite of passage rituals and baby naming ceremonies can also be very special ways to to celebrate and honor your new transition into family-hood.
