Welcoming our Children


As parents, gathering family and friends to welcome and name our children is one of the greatest gifts we can give them. For in so doing, we create their foundational narrative that articulates the values and principles that will guide us in our parenting and our children in navigating and living their lives.

Your naming ceremony can be as formal or as simple as you wish. This is your Naming Ceremony so it can be what you want it to be for you and your child. The Naming Ceremony, if you have invited guests, is simultaneously a public and discretely personal affair between you and your child and between members of your family, friends and loved ones.

It can happen at any age and in most any setting.

They say it takes a village to raise a child and a Welcoming and Naming Ceremony is a great opportunity to celebrate the birth of your son or daughter and to connect with your friends and family. Namings are usually 20 minutes or so in duration ( depending upon how many children are being named and how old they are!)

The process I offer you is very flexible to meet what you want for the day.

if you’d like to speak about the possibility of creating a Naming and Welcoming ceremony, give me a call on 0431 23 129 or contact me here.

There is no better foundation to offer our children than a gathering of love in their honour.
