Why Belly Blessing?
What better way to celebrate your child’s birth to the world by decorating your pregnant belly with exotic henna art? It’s beautiful to look at and washes off after a few weeks or a month. In addition, prenatal henna is also a traditional practice that is meant to bring about a safe and gentle birth for the baby.
And what better way for the mom-to-be to celebrate her transition into motherhood than an exquisite henna design that showcases her joy for all to see? Blessing a woman’s growing belly with henna application is a special tradition that was common in ancient times.
Its main aim is to facilitate the growth of an unborn child and protect it from the evil eye. Of course, the fact that the natural brown color of henna makes a woman’s belly a sight to behold is an added bonus.
This truly makes prenatal henna the safest, not to mention the most unique, way to decorate your changing body during your pregnancy.
Your belly is the Canvas
Unlike body paint, henna tattoos do not fade off after a shower. It takes a few weeks for henna designs to fade off. This is why most new moms leave their belly blessing sessions during the last few months of their pregnancies.

It also gives the henna artist a larger canvas to work with, which is why prenatal henna looks better on expecting mothers who are in the final few weeks of their pregnancies.
Please remember: Before you make an appointment with a henna artist, always consult with your OBGYN especially if you happen to have any deficiency such as G6PD*.
