Welcoming a New Life Coming Into Our World
Few events in our lives bring as much happiness as welcoming a new baby boy or girl into our families and our community. New life is at the very heart of what it means to be human.
A Humanist Baby Naming is a very personal and beautiful way to welcome your child.
The ceremony can take place whenever and wherever you want. Many parents hold the ceremony to kick off a party in their home or at a special venue. In this way all family and friends can be there and even participate to mark this happy event.
A Unique Ceremony
The ceremony can be as personal and individual as you want. Some ideas: a message book so that people can write their own personal message to your child; tree planting; the inclusion of siblings, other family members or friends.
Instead of having godparents, relatives or friends are chosen to become ‘guide parents’, ‘supporting adults’, ‘mentors’, or ‘special friends’. They too can be part of the ceremony, and make it personal by saying how they will be there for your child as he or she grows.
So, What Happens Next?
Once you have made contact with me we’ll arrange a mutually convenient time to discuss ideas and answer questions, and then to thoroughly plan the ceremony so you feel relaxed and confident of all going well on the day.
