Birth Blessing

A series of still images taken during Billie’s woman only birth blessing.

Twenty-one women and elders gathered to help prepare for the birth of Billie’s son. A dance performance revealed the wise woman rug and invited each woman to help finish the creation in preparation for birth. Women from all over the Australia, and Greece contributed a patch with their name on to be used during birth as a source of inspiration and strength. A family heirloom.
