There is such joy at the birth of a child!
As an interspiritual minister, I offer baby blessings that acknowledge the "Original Blessing" that a new life is for a family.
"Reverend Sue crafted the most beautiful baby blessing ceremony for our twin girls. It was exactly what we were looking for: a perfect celebration of the love and support of family with the spiritual guidance of God. Once again Rev. Sue made our dream come true as the most important part of these big days in our lives.” - Maigen Connally Beaulieu (2013 Wedding, 2014 Baby Blessing)
Baby blessings can include a naming ritual, prayer for the child and parents, symbolic elements to recognize the strengths that a child is given from the family, and other traditional, religious elements that are important to you. They can be done in private homes, halls, outdoors, or any other venue of your choice.

Here is a prayer recited by the parents from a recent baby blessing:
"(Baby name), we recognize that you are a gift from God.
We will always care for you with unconditional love.
We will watch over you and support you to grow healthy and happy.
We will strive to be wise guides
and to offer you our best as parents."
