mother blessing bead... made for d.
there will be a necklace made of all the different beads brought by each woman to the mother blessing later this afternoon...then d will wear it or have it hung near her during the birth of her first child.
all the plans are for a beautiful home birth...the whole home birth issue happens to be a hot topic at the moment. it is one of the many choices for giving birth...but unfortunately in this country home birth is unsupported financially, medically and within general society (one astonishing and revealing comment that d heard from a neighbour was :" isn't that illegal?")

It's the same here in Spain where medical care is for the most part free. If you choose to have a home birth or give birth in an alternative medical center (eg with a water birth option) things can get very expensive.

My mother in law helped a woman deliver on the front steps of her dentist's surgery the other day. I guess you never know when it's all going to happen. This could be a problem if your neighbor was right ; )
