ICEA or Childbirth graphics?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I've ordered materials from CG and they are great, but ICEA prices are MUCH better, but you don't really get to see what you are buying.

Which do you prefer? Is ICEA good quality?

THanks Ladies!

Also does anyone know where I can get a pelvis for cheap, as well as a uterus w/ a snap-on vagina?

I've always ordered from Childbirth Grapics too... re: pelvis, I just bought one on Ebay for $50 total, including shipping & was very happy with that price. It's just an inch or two smaller than the standard ones, but after receiving it & checking it out, I think it's a great size - not huge for bringing with me/storing, but large enough to show to a group/pass around.

This just made me laugh out loud!

Just had to laugh!

I have used ebay to purchase a pelvis for a fair price, and if you knit or know a knitter, you can make a uterus pretty easy! google for the pattern!

Best,

Does anyone know of any CROCHET patterns for the uterus?

I think the reason there are no crochet uterus patterns (for childbirth education purposes) is because the ribbing stitch at the cervix area of the uterus is so stretchy (to demonstrate dilation and the baby's head coming through)...if the uterus were crocheted, it wouldn't stretch like that, ya know?

RE: ICEA, don't buy their pelvis, I know of someone who did and the coxxyx broke off and they refused to even entertain a replacement. It's also not a great quality.

I'd much rather invest in one from Childbirth Graphics that will last a lifetime, or longer. Mine are from CG and had a previous life with a midwife and it's still in great shape. The other is from a former CBE and it's still like new as well.

I bought my knit uterus off ebay for $20, complete with snapping vagina. Just keep an eye out.

Oh! I don't know all that much about crochet...I didn't know there were ribbing stitches...most all of the crochet I've ever seen wasn't stretchy at all. Sorry bout that!
