In Bucovina each important life moment is surrounded by old traditions. Moments as birth, wedding, or burial are marked by both Chistian and pre Christian customs and rites.
Childbirth is a significantly joyful event for every family. In those moments, the mother and the midwife would perform a series of rites. The parents would be involved in a series of practices meant to protect the infant from the dark forces and to integrate the newborn in society.
