'And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than
the risk it took to blossom.'

Mothers Blessing Celebration - Instead of having a 'Baby Shower' a Mothers Blessing is a celebration of the pending birth of a mother to be. This is a rite of passage that is supported by a new mothers family, friends and tribe, no matter whether this is the first or fifth pregnancy. A Mothers Blessing involves an intricate web of rituals to celebrate the upcoming birth of a baby and the birth of a mum, remembering that with each new birth a new mother emerges. Let Om Birth organise this beautiful ritual for you or the pregnant Muma in your life. Starting at $300, which includes organising (invitations, emails, instructions for each attendant, providing the little extras to make the celebration memorable) and leading the ritual. Extra costs may include catering, belly paint and or an artist to create beautiful belly art or a professional photographer for the event. To inquire contact us here.
Troy Fardell is an artist and body cast specialist with many years of experience and many bellies cast. Unlike the plaster bandage kit, this will be an intricate art piece with high detail, to be cherished for years to come. Begins at $1000 for a full belly cast, painted (one colour) or can be left unpainted. Please contact us here to book your belly cast.
