A loving and intimate alternative to a baby shower. Drawing on the traditions of ancient cultures, Mim creates a nurturing and safe environment to honour and celebrate the Pregnant Mum as she moves into a new stage of life - motherhood, for the first or subsequent time. A wonderful opportunity to provide positive energy and support to the Pregnant Mum, and at the same time, acknowledge an important rite of passage.

What happens in a Pregnancy Circle?

Whilst each Circle is unique and is tailored to meet individual needs, below are some of the options that can be included in a Pregnancy Circle.

  • A beautiful altar complete with flowers, candles and crystals sets the mood in the middle of the Pregnancy Circle.
  • The Pregnancy Circle opens with an explanation of the ritual as well as cleansing of the room with a ‘smudge stick’ - a native American custom used to prepare a space.
  • An optional short chant is offered to quiet the mind.
  • A short, guided meditation continues the process of relaxing and unwinding. 
  • Guests share stories and wisdom about the gifts and challenges of motherhood or bring along a favorite story/poem/blessing or symbol that represents birth or parenting. Guests also have the opportunity to celebrate their friendship with the Pregnant Mum.
  • Pampering time for the Pregnant Mum begins. She reclines on a sofa, eyes closed and listening to beautiful music. Friends lay their hands on the Pregnant Mum’s stomach, sending her and the baby love and energy - A wish or blessing for the Pregnant Mum and her baby are written on a beautiful card and presented to her in a special bag as each guest lights a candle to symbolise their wish or blessing.
  • Closure of the Circle, which includes presenting the Pregnant Mum with a beautiful booklet to keep - full of special mementos from the Circle’s guests and honouring their individual friendships with her.
  • Extra Option;

    (This is charged separately)
  • Materials are tidied away, leaving the guests to celebrate in another way - eating and drinking!
