NEW MAMA; PROTECTOR OF YOUNG MOTHERS
New Mama; Protector calls on the Spirit of the South. This New Mama is perfect for a Blessing Way Ceremony or for the Mother who is still healing her own birth(s)/ postpartum experiences. New Mama sits on a prayer nest of wild seaweeds, kelp roots, tree roots and some twigs. This nest is symbol of home, safety and unconditional love. New Mama is celebrating her initiation into the Motherhood Journey. She is crowned, adorned with the Sun on her head- a symbol of fertility, warmth and healing. She wears a “River Sash” around her body, more adornment for her Rite of Passage. She breastfeeds her baby on her right tit and wears red pants for protection of her postpartum bubble or world. New Mama is gentle, patient in her big learning time. She is practicing how to Mother herself and receive from others. Weave your prayers into her nest, wrap them around her, shower her with your own adornments and of course shake the prayers up!!!

MORE ABOUT MY KELP RATTLE DOLL MEDICINE
I craft my magic dolls with wild ocean things like sea grass, seaweed and driftwood. Sometimes I uses plants, bones and animal medicines when I am called but I always use Kelp because it is the strongest heart medicine and dolls should always be made with the attention of a very loving Mama. I also use Kelp because that is my personal Medicine Path Teacher, the one I know best and foremost. I craft my dolls using the old, ancient Slavic Wisdom that runs through me strong like a river. My work is very closely inspired by the Motanka Tradition. I let my hands flow and follow my heart! My prayer is that my Kelp Doll Work offers both Healing and Protection to as many women as possible. My dream is to preserve my heritage and bring back the teaching of Folk Doll Magic.
