Closing the Bones
Closing the bones is a very special way to honour the new mother. This ceremony can be carried out after you have birthed your baby or babies and honours you and your body. Closing the Bones is a way to aid and support a woman's recovery after childbirth; and a way to create a moment of quiet reflection, stillness and meditative peace in the emotional and at times exhausting postnatal period. It is a ceremony that celebrates and honours new motherhood. WE at Marvellous Mammas believe that ceremony places a vital part in our sense of wellbeing. Just as we mark the other stages of our life with ceremony ; baptism, weddings and funerals we do believe that the powerful and life changing experience that is birth should be celebrated and honoured.
