Seemantham 2019 dates | Auspicious days for Seemantham

Seemantham is a ceremony performed in odd months of pregnancy like – 3rd month, 5th month, 7th month or 9th month for would-be-mother in South Indian states like Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Tamil Nadu.

The mother-to-be will be blessed by elders, guests, relatives, friends and all other well-wishers for best health and safe pregnancy and healthy delivery of the baby. But according to the ‘Ashwalayan Gruhya Sutra’, Seemantham is to be performed in 4th or 6th or 8th month of pregnancy.

As per the popular belief, Seemantham is similar ritual to baby shower. But its factually incorrect as the intention of both rituals is entirely different.

In this Samskara, while praying to the God for the health of the child, the husband combs the hair of his wife to please her. Other young and old ladies of the family, relatives and neighbors bless the pregnant woman for a health and easy delivery.

The time of celebrating Seemantham depends upon the community and tradition. In South India, each place and each state has its own tradition in terms of celebrating the ceremony.

Valaikaapu in Tamil Nadu

Nowadays Seemantham is often combined with a “Valaikaapu” ritual hosted by the pregnant woman’s mother. The Seemantham ceremony is more religious in nature as opposed to the Valaikaapu, which is meant to be an informal function.
