"Congratulations! Is it a boy or a girl? What name have you chosen?"
When the magic day comes, you can't just call your new baby: "My baby" well, not after the first few dizzy hours, can you? So let's make it official. When you've picked a name (or two), let's get together and start organizing a special Naming Ceremony.
A Naming Ceremony is rather like a formal Christening, only without religious elements and far more casual and fun. You tell me what you'd like to happen on the day and - I'll make it happen!
First we'll meet to get acquainted, then do a little brainstorming together to be sure we've covering everything.
In a Naming Ceremony you can have readings and poems, and music if you like. If you've chosen Godparents or guardians, they can play a part too, perhaps giving some of the readings. At the end I'll provide you with a beautiful Certificate of Naming, plus Certificates for the Godparents or guardians if they are present.
The ceremony can be held anywhere you like, at your home, in the garden, in the local park, or on a beach. But my experience says: keep in mind the comfort of your new baby. (Wind in your ears, sun in your eyes, and a whole lot of strange people wanting to hold you, can be a bit of a stress on your first official outing!)
And my other suggestion is, if there are going to be other children present - yours or your friends - don't make the ceremony too long, because children aren't as committed to the happy occasion as you are!
So - let's start with a chat. Phone me on 0416 098 908 or my email is: firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll come over and give you one of my "Ideas Folders" with lots of different ceremonies to start you thinking how you'd like your baby's day to flow.
