The arrival of a new baby in your family is the most amazing, exciting experience and a wonderful way to welcome your beautiful son or daughter to the world is by giving them a naming or blessing ceremony. There is not really any difference between the two. Generally a baby's name is given and confirmed during a blessing ceremony. However, some parents prefer not to have any spiritual content to the ceremony in which case the ceremony would be considered a naming ceremony.
At a baby blessing you have the opportunity to make promises to your baby or child about your commitment to, and how you will raise, him or her. You can choose friends and/or relatives who will play the roles of special supporters or guardians for your child (sometimes known as godparents). You can ask everyone who attends the blessing to bless your child in their own way. There are so many possibilities for a baby blessing, they are really only limited by your imagination.
I would be delighted to help you to create a blessing ceremony that honours your baby and truly celebrates his or her presence in your lives.
It's also good to remember that it is perfectly possible to have a blessing ceremony for older children or to include all your children in one blessing if you want.
