Anyone who wants to be a part of our DDC bead swap let me know here so we can get something started! I offered to be the organizer. Let me know so I can see if we can get enough people interested and figure out when the send-out-by date should be, to make sure they get here and back out in time! We should probably get it going here soon if we have anyone outside of the US that is interested in being a part of this as well! I will send my address in a private message to those that want to be a part! So exciting!
What are birth beads? Birth beads are given as a symbol or reminder of the support you have been given throughout pregnancy and can be worn throughout pregnancy and during birth once made into a necklace or bracelet.
So what you do for the bead swap is, everyone buys beads (one for every person wanting to be involved) and mails them to me along with a prepaid, addressed envelope. I then sort the beads (so everyone gets one from every person) and mail them back and then you make a necklace, bracelet or whatever out of them. Then during labor, and beyond, you have something to remind you of all of these lovely mamas that have been so supportive along the way! Here is an example!
