Baby Shower


This ceremony is third in series of pre-natal Sanskaara and it is performed between the sixth and eighth months.  Some communities performed in the seventh month of pregnancy as well. As the mind of the foetus begins to develop the Seemantonnayan Sanskaara directs the parents’ attention to the child’s mental development and to protect from all negative influences. During these few months before child is born  both the husband and wife should concentrate on the mental development of the child; they should realize that the child’s mental development depends entirely on them and that way they lead their intellectual lives will leave its impression on the child.
