Darug family traditions that welcome a baby

Posted in Feed Play Love.

How did you welcome your baby to the world?

You may have had a Christening, a baby shower or even a celebratory piece of sushi.

Different cultures have different ways of celebrating the birth of a baby.

Jasmine Seymour is a Darug woman and primary school teacher.

She’s written a book called Baby Business, all about a baby smoking ceremony.

It’s sprinkled with Darug words and a strong sense of history and place. Jasmine explains how smoking ceremonies work for babies and why it’s good for the whole community.
