Labour Beadline – pdf – pattern


Explore labour and childbirth using this wonderful visual and tactile learning aid. The labour beadline.


Labour Beadline – pdf – pattern – Tactile and Visual aid for childbirth education.

Following this Labour Beadline – pdf – pattern you’ll make a labour beadline. Your Labour Beadline is a tactile and visual teaching tool which will help you and parents-to-be to explore what happens during labour and childbirth. A memorable way of explaining and understanding how childbirth unfolds and how to support the process!

Every labour beadline is unique, just as labour is 🙂 All labour beadlines are handmade by me, Tina Gibbs. 

I have some ready-made labour beadlines available to purchase as well as offering custom-made labour beadlines to order, too. Please contact me to inquire.

How can you use your labour beadline? – just a few ideas…

  • illustrate the different stages of labour
  • with add-ons (pictures and cards) to make labour more visual
  • to discuss what may be happening when
  • to use with comfort measure cards (available separately, see massage cards etc.)

I also offer an interactive ZOOM labour beadline DIY Workshop and other workshops for birth workers! You can find this and all my workshops on my Eventbrite page.

This product makes a great present for any midwife, doula, birth worker, antenatal teacher, breastfeeding counsellor or secondary school teacher.

You can also purchase ready-made labour beadlines or kits.

The pictures in the gallery are some examples of available kits – the exact ones pictures may not be available, but I can usually make similar ones.
