Our sixth pregnancy came with some complications and bedrest, which caused a lot of anxiety. We were hoping for our third VBAC, and I was trying so hard to be positive and not let my fears take over. My very sweet husband had this necklace made to remind me of one of my mantras – All is well. I wore it through our birth and this photo was taken as our healthy, beautiful baby girl nursed for the first time and gazed up at me.
Celebrating 30 Years of ICAN: 30 Crafts–Labor Jewelry
During labor it can be very meaningful for women to wear a piece of jewelery with special significance to them. This could be a beaded bracelet made at a blessingway, a family heirloom, or a gift from their partner. Whether purchased or handmade, this tangible reminder of love and support can be incredibly encouraging through pregnancy and birth!
