I've never had one, but would love it! My sister had one with her baby, but I wasn't able to go (out of state
She said one thing they did was to have everyone sit in a circle and they all sang a song while one person went around the circle and wrapped a piece of ribbon/yarn around each woman's wrist, until they were all connected - to symbolize unity. Once the circle was complete they cut the yarn in-between each person, and then tied it onto their wrist to wear until baby was born, as a reminder to pray/send positive thoughts and energy to the mother in her final weeks of pregnancy.
I've also heard of sending candles home to be lit when the mother goes into labor.
