blessing the way...

we crowned her with flowers...



we decorated her belly...



(and ourselves...)



we made a necklace... with bead from each of us, to have during the birth so she can be supported by her village of women...


we sent her a blessing, and wrapped a string on our wrist, to be worn until baby arrives...


and we will light candles when labor begins.


 and with each ritual... my sister's way was blessed in my mind, as well.
