Hi family, please tell me how baby shower takes place? What's the best time to do it.. I want to take in Indian culture not western.. Also it is imp to call all relatives in ceremony? Can't it just be my parents and husband's parents?

ritu singhal Neha Mani Mishra Kavita Sahany

We celebrated it on. The 11th day, its basically some prayers, blessings and naming ceremony with both my husband and family also my family

It can absolutely be just your near and dear ones dear. Basically on baby shower all the family and friends gather to bless the baby and the to be mom with blessings. They bring thoughful gifts for both as well(not necessary). You can do anytime you like but mostly it takes place when you have stepped into your 7th month. The mom is dressed beautifully and she is the centre of all attention.

It's up to you Charu. Your parents or in laws will know how to do. It depends on your custom. Invite well wishers their blessings means a lot to us. will be shocked to hear that our god bharai happens even before wedding! Right on engagement 😂 so,completely up to you..India has got tonnes of rituals,you can plan anytime. It's important to enjoy the moment so whenever you feel comfortable!

Yes go in for your community rituals for godbharai. Check up with family on an auspicious date and generally the ritual takes place during the seventh month.

ritu singhal we too also do that God bharai on engagement

Hey Charu.. you check rituals with your mom or mom in law.. like for me no baby shower as such at my parents side but in-laws have this ritual and is done when we are into 7th month of pregnancy.. some people prefer it simple just family affair but for some it's a reason to gather whole family relatives friends.. and some pujas are performed for well being of child and mother... Then everyone give you blessings gifts and stuff..

Also once you have another function happens.. so in India we are never short of reasons to celebrate..

Strange !!!!!! Mrs Chhoker ritu singhal .....really shocked. ..god bharai happened before marriage. ..????:)

Yes and we don't have any baby shower or ritual before birth infact my mil don't allow me to buy anything new for baby

See,how in these pics you see that small doll in my lap..

Hey dear's different for different regions ...
The best time is the 7 th month as it's also considered the safest can call your family and friends for it ..
A puja is done , followed by tilak and giving you goodies ..
It can be followed by a bunch or dinner .. you can keep small return gifts for the guests; .
Might differ from region to region but the basic philosophy remains the same ....the entire family rejoices the birth of the baby and shower their blessings for the same ....
Best wishes and take care !!

Thanks everyone for replying.. It's so nice to see so many different rituals.. I'm looking forward to the same when I enter 7th month.. Thanks again.. Lots of blessings to u all🙌🙌
