Blessings for a mother-to-be

Oh, you who radiate life, A blessing

Blessings for a mother-to-be

May your pregnancy unfold with ease.
May your pregnancy unfold with ease.
Oh, you who radiate life
A blessing

May your pregnancy unfold with ease
May gentleness surround you

Joy for precious days
Days of two hearts beating in one body

You radiate wonder
Inspiring poetry, art, worship of ancients

Trust your body
This process and your unique pregnancy path

Soon to emerge as mother
May kindness guide your hands

Oh, you who radiate life
Birth blessings 

May you move with the wisdom of breath
Of your animal form

Of your gorgeous heart
Courage be yours

Radiating mother-to-be
I marvel at your light

For I remember those days
Holy days of goddess awe
And gratitude beyond measure fills me

May it be so for you
And even more
