USA Health Children’s & Women’s Hospital now is offering a baby blessing to each mother in the mother-baby unit and neonatal intensive care unit. Chaplain Kim Crawford Meeks, spiritual care manager for USA Health, is available to perform a blessing and will give families a baby blessing keepsake card of their choosing, with religious and non-religious versions available.

Welcome to the World (non-religious)

With grateful hearts, we are so very thankful that you are here with us. You are beautifully and wonderfully made. Your life has great purpose in this world. We hope for blessings for you beyond what we can think or imagine as you learn, grow and experience life along your journey. May you demonstrate love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control in all circumstances. May you experience protection, a positive attitude and peace beyond understanding. May your family and friends lead you in great wisdom and love you with compassion and kindness. Please be sure to look for rainbows, rest in the sunshine, and smile and laugh often. Life is now better because you are here.
