Take a cauldron or bowl (representing the future mother’s womb) and fill it with clean water, along with essential oils associated with protection (such as frankincense or cedarwood).
To the water, add the energies of the elements via a symbol or token for each of them (such as air/feather, earth/stone, fire/ash, and water/seashell), along with symbols that to you and the mother are representative of possibility, health, and safety. Finally, add a seed to the bowl (to represent the child). Place the bowl over a picture of the mother-to-be (or if she’s with you, have her touch or hold the bowl) and say:
May no harm come to child or mother,
Remove the seed from the bowl and give it to the expectant mother. If she lives far away, the seed may be sent to her.
