Celebration of New Life-
Baby Namings

A Baby Naming Ceremony is an alternative to a baptism that allows for flexibility in beliefs and in location of where your ceremony is held. The Baby Naming can take any form you would like it to take from an informal backyard ceremony to a more formal naming ceremony and celebration. Regardless of how big or small, your Baby Naming Ceremony will be a wonderful opportunity to gather family and friends to welcome your precious new addition to the family.

Inclusions in the ceremony are as varied as your imagination. Perhaps you would like to print your baby’s handprint or have everyone present write a wish for the child’s life to go in a love jar for their 21st birthday. Maybe you’d like to give symbolic gifts to the baby or keep the baby’s name secret until the ceremony. There are so many ways to make the ceremony special and unique and Margie is here to help you craft something that will welcome your baby in a fitting way.

Giving Back

In September, 2006, my beautiful niece was born. It was a scary time for my sister and her family as she was diagnosed with hydrocephalus and rushed to Westmead Children’s Hospital where at just days old, she was operated on and given a life-saving shunt. Hydrocephalus is the abnormal enlargement of the brain cavities caused by a build up of cerebral spinal fluid. This fluid is made and absorbed by the brain and serves to protect and nourish the brain and spinal cord. Untreated, hydrocephalus can result in brain damage or death. Hydrocephalus affects cognitive, social and physical development and abilities in diverse ways.
I’m pleased to say my niece is doing well in school and with regular medical assistance is experiencing childhood to the fullest.
I’m so thankful for her health and happiness and for other children who are also affected, that I’d like to give back.
