Baby Showers.

As we know them today, are a fairly new concept that transformed in the early 1900s. However, the concept originated in ancient Rome and Greece in which a mother was held in isolation just before and after the birth of the baby. When the mother was welcomed back to society, close friends, family and affiliations would have a celebration and shower mother and child with gifts to welcome the baby into the world.

In the early 1900s medical advancements had made way and fewer babies and mothers were lost, so the celebrations were made to happen before the child’s arrival to prepare both mother and child with as much baby items as they might need.

Today, the concept is still there, however, it is more about preparing the mother for the child’s arrival than welcoming the new baby. A celebration is held to shower the mother-to-be with gifts that would assist her with clothing and caring for the baby. In addition to gifting the mother with baby items, the event provides an opportunity in which other mothers can bestow mothering advice and tips, which is generally delivered in fun games. The importance of these events is priceless and so many different aspects contribute to the delivery and preparedness of the mother and child. It establishes the village that will be there in the raising of the child and creates a blanket of comfort for the mother, which is necessary; because bringing a new life into the world is a huge responsibility and for as much excitement and joy that comes with the impending birth of the new baby, there is an equal amount of worry and concern.

A fun baby shower, beautifully planned around everything that is cute and cuddly, is an event that very mother must enjoy. It celebrates new life.

The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.
