As I stated in a previous post, my goal is to become a nurse midwife. I am also a big supporter of homebirth. Today I will feature Etsy products and sellers that celebrate the beauty of natural birth.
The first item is a children's book called "We're Having a Homebirth" by Kelly Mochel. It has fun, colorful illustrations that explains pregnancy, natural childbirth, and midwifery in a age appropriate manner. The book cost $6.50 and is availible from http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=28905806&ref=sr_gallery_1&=&ga_search_query=midwife&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=&order=date_desc&includes%5B0%5D=tags&includes%5B1%5D=title&show_panel=true
Next is a beautiful "Born at Home" wood ordament handmade by Chris at Mamaroot's shop
This next item is a really unique and beautiful pendant that shows the beauty of birth. It represents a mother in labor at the moment of crowning. Availible for $15 from Blessingway shop at http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=28685829
This next piece is also a necklace. I like how the pendant looks like a big,beautiful pregnant belly.
This necklace is also availible in versions that say 'midwife' and 'doula'. Made by Moonovermaize at http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=27660744&ref=sr_gallery_10&&ga_search_query=homebirth&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=&order=date_desc&includes=tags&includes=title
I think this next piece is beautiful. However, if you are offended by anatomically correct (clay) depictions of female reproductive organs, this is your warning.
Artful Charm-Vulva pendant.
This beautiful charm celebrates womanhood. It depicts the vulva and clitoral hood of the vaginal area. $13 from VulvaLoveLovely at http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=27498353&ref=sr_gallery_11&&ga_search_query=vulva&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=&order=date_desc&includes=tags&includes=title
