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

3 in stock


The Beaded Birth Line is lovingly designed and made by Katherine Woodbury. Each of them is handmade in the UK.

The Beaded Birth Line includes approximately 36 carefully selected beads, mostly in glass. They represent the different phases of labour, birth and the immediate postnatal period.

These all include the new, updated dilation beads as well as the water’s breaking bead.

It provides a useful teaching aid to explain the physiological and emotional effect of these phases and how long they might be.

This works well with first time parents and for refreshing future births- it brings up deep discussions and also works well as a method of birth de-briefing.

The product comes in a pouch with a full guidance sheet with ideas for use and facilitation and a helpful quick glance guide too.
