Ok, I'm ready. I just went out and bought diapers and had a mini panic attack while doing it. We are waiting for the cloth diaper service to get back to us so we can get that set up but I wanted back ups in the mean time. Deep Breaths....
An assignment for my Birthing From Within Class was to make a birth bundle. It is a symbolic little pouch with various meaningfull things inside. It was really fun and medetative to make this since crafting is a good outlet for me and it gave me a chance to really foccus on what symbolic things are important to me and why. Here are a few pictures of my birth bundle:

The tree embroidery was done on the machine. After that I added some little felted wool leaves with french knots in the middle.


























I made little velvet pockets on the inside for a shell, a quarz crystal I found in a local quary, and a marble. The feather I tied to the otherside. Pretty typical symbolism for a seaside town with plenty of woodsiness to run around in now and then. I am definately connected to this place.

That is so neat that you were able to take a Birthing From Within class. I wasn't able to find any but my midwife created a similar style class for a me and another pregnant woman. It was amazing.
