Baby Shower

Baby showers have traditionally been a way of celebrating forthcoming birth. These gatherings are also a wonderful way of supporting the new mother and her family. The only rule is the expectant mother cannot organise her own shower, this is left, usually, to her female friends, relatives and work colleagues etc. Men are welcome to these occasions as fathers and grandfathers are so much more involved in child rearing these days.

Our baby showers are amazing involving games, challenges, body painting, food, Soft drinks and going home presents for all guests. We have a great range of menus available, not just fabulous food but scrumptious mock tails. So contact our party planners to organise this memorable event today!

What is godh bharai?

Godh bharai is a baby shower celebrated during pregnancy to welcome the unborn baby to the family and bless the mother-to-be with abundant joys of motherhood. In Hindi, godh bharai literally means to 'fill the lap' with abundance. In Bengal it is known as shaad, in Kerala, seemandham and in Tamil Nadu it is called valakappu.

When is Godh Bharai done?

It depends on the community the family belongs to. In some families the ceremony is held when the mother-to-be completes her seventh month of pregnancy. It is believed that after the seventh month, the baby and mother are in a safe phase. In some families it is celebrated at the end of the eighth month.

How is Godh Bharai Performed?

While the rituals followed in various parts of the country on the occasion of godh bharai may differ, the essence remains the same - to bless the unborn baby and shower the pregnant mum-to-be with blessings and gifts. Traditionally, godh bharai is a 'women-only' gathering. The ceremony may include adorning the mum-to-be with jewellery, making her wear bangles, filling her lap with gifts, fruits and sweets and laying out a feast before her. It is also common for the ceremony to be filled with singing, dancing and a fair amount of teasing and fun. It may include some games such as guessing the gender of the baby by the size and shape of the pregnant mum's belly or creating a names list for your baby.
