My Beads Have Arrived!

At the beginning of this pregnancy I joined an online community of other crunchy moms who were due around the same time I am. We decided that it would be neat if we all bought beads and sent them to a designated leader who would then make up batches for each woman containing one bead from each of us to make up a birthing necklace.

My beads came in the mail today! I was so excited to open them. Each bead is so unique and carried with it a poem, quote or good wishes for the birth.

I've ordered a custom pendant to be the center of my birthing necklace and I can't wait until it arrives so I can put all these beads together and wear them, YAY! I'll post a couple of pictures of individual beads below.

This one came in a red felt bag with a cord attached to represent the placenta :-)

This one is a shell that was picked up on the woman's vacation to Kauai!

This one reads "This heart represents a healthy, vibrant and robust placenta"

And this one says "The flower in full bloom represents an open cervix, ready to release your baby into the world"

I love feeling connected to other pregnant women, we are all on our own little journey's but yet we walk together in so many ways.
