Are you preparing for the birth of your baby? Done the hypnotherapy course, ordered your birthpool, got the homeopathy kit for childbirth, written your birth plan – argued with your midwife about it, printed out your affirmations and hired a doula?

Treat yourself to a bracelet designed using Crystals that will help you discover your inner Birthing Goddess.

Moonstone is the archetypal feminine stone, connecting us to the Divine Feminine and Goddess within. It can reveal to women their feminine power (Simmons 2005), and birthing is a time like no other for this to be felt! It brings calm, balance and confidence (Permutt 2008). If you could only choose one crystal for childbirth, then Moonstone should be it. .
Bloodstone strengthens the root chakra, source of physical energies (Simmons 2005). It lends the body stamina and brings inner strength and courage (Ahsian 2005) – just what you need during childbirth.

Whilst I believe Crystals, Amber and Hazel wood to be amazing and powerful, my jewellery should not be considered as a substitute for conventional medicine. If you have any kind of health issue, you should consult your doctor. I would like to advise that when I talk about, post or give advice relating to the healing properties of crystals and stones, this is my own personal beliefs and the results of my research. Although a crystal or stone is alleged to have one or more healing properties, either physical, mental, emotional or spiritual, it does not mean that you will definitely experience or benefit from these properties.
