On a side note, I also chose to include tigers eye in my personal pregnancy, labor, and delivery gemstones. It helps you release fear and anxiety while aiding in decision making. Things I see myself needing on a daily basis, that will also aid me personally in childbirth.

  1. My sister is going to be giving birth to her first child at the end of March. She is a little freaked out by the idea of going into labor. So, I want to give her something to help make her be a little less stressed about it. I like that you explained that moonstones can help with staying stress-free during labor. I wonder if I could get her a moonstone bracelet she could wear.

    1. A moonstone bracelet would be a perfect idea Penelope! I love that you’re thinking of your sister and her needs. Amazon has some great ones available! I wore my laboring crystals as necklaces. I hope her labor goes smoothly.
