The Beauty of Birth Rituals

birth stones1The beauty of creating ritual around birth…

This morning I went into my daughter’s room and picked a little pouch out from her bedside draw, asking her if she knew what it is. When she didn’t, I proceeded to share with her that it was one of the crystals that was in the birthing pool with us when she was born.

She replied “So it’s my birth crystal?”.

It was such a special moment. The look on her face was of such appreciation of the special token to celebrate her entrance into the world.

I relished in that moment and realised the lasting power of creating rituals for birth.

Rituals don’t need to be complicated, but with a little loving intention behind the act, they can become treasured memories that will last a lifetime.
