Prayer Boxes, Birth Beads and the Birthing Experience

Some expectant mothers find strength during the birthing process by taking a prayer box with them, inside which is placed fourteen beads representing the seven Chakra of the mother and child.  Some believe that these beads transfer energy and power to the mother.  They can also be used to focus the mother's attention while giving labor, and as a source of strength during the entire experience.

A prayer box and set of birth beads make a wonderful gift for the expectant mother!  They symbolize the support that she has from the loved one who bestowed this gift upon her.  Birth beads are available from BirthBeads.ComSacredCenters.com offers a wealth of information about the Seven Chakra.  

Beyond Birth Beads

Other expectant mothers use the prayer box in its more traditional way by placing their prayer for a healthy and happy child and good birthing experience into their prayer box, and bringing it with them when giving birth.
