The ceremony will be guided by Alixe van Ogtrop, mother of a 10 month old little girl, who will teach us about the ancient ceremonies and guide us on this unique and special ceremony. This particular ceremony is geared towards babies and inviting them to “be” here on earth. We would therefore like to invite all parents and their children under 1 year of age to participate and join our ceremony.

We also ask you to bring a special item to the ceremony. This unique item will be charged and filled with memories of the day that you can then take home with you.  

With limited space available, we kindly ask you to inform us before hand whether both parent will be joining the ceremony. We can imagine that you’d both like to be part of this unique and special moment, so just drop us an email at: hello@motherheart.org

In motherhood, life, and during ceremonies with babies, we are faced with unexpected moments. Please enter the ceremony letting go of expectations and realize that all is okay and welcome. This is a judgment-free zone where you don’t have to be self-conscious or how your baby will “behave”. Life is beautiful, with all its messiness and uncalculated moments.

Let’s build this new future together, celebrate the new generation, and honor the little miracle you are holding in your arms.
