Created to nurture the mother after giving birth, + offering gratitude as she eases into the enormous work of motherhood. This sacred time will be used to hold space to nurture her physically + emotionally
The Closing of the Bones is a sacred ceremony done with the intention to “close” the new mother after birth through a ritual of Gratitude. Birth is a deep transformational journey + is a rite of passage that continues into motherhood.
The wrapping + pulling of the ancient cloth provides a sense of protection, warmth, connection + the sensation of relaxation throughout the body. The whole body is hugged + the “closing” slowly alleviates any pelvic instability, aches + tiredness in the body.
This particular Ceremony was derived from the Moroccan Culture + is typically completed within the first 40 days after giving birth but can also be performed many years after birth with the same amazing results. During these first 40 days it is a time for the new mother to heal, reflect, + build a connection with herself and her new baby.
