Crossing the threshold from maiden to mother is a huge undertaking that not only needs to be recognised but it should be honoured for the sacred rite of passage it is. Every woman deserves to be welcomed into motherhood with nurturing touch, deep love, compassion and gentle care. In many cultures when a woman had birthed her baby, it was seen as a spiritual time that deserves extreme reverence, humility, deep holistic care and warmth that enables the new mama to truly heal and seal the birth process. Here in the west we have lost this art of sacred honouring and nurturing of our beautiful women, we have lost the knowledge of all has been passed down from our own mothers, grandmothers and so on.
