THE MAGIC OF AN ANCESTRAL TRADITION
The maternity necklace is a piece of jewelry that was traditionally worn in the Mayan culture. When rolled gently, it emits a soothing and harmonious crystalline sound; it was nicknamed "Angel Caller" because according to legend, it has the power to summon a guardian angel. The maternity necklace was offered to future mothers as a good luck charm.
After birth, the familiar melody was said to soothe newborns. Mothers would hang it over the cradle or sew it into a comforter to calm their baby.
The soft vibrations of your maternity necklace can lead you towards a state of well-being.
Carrying a new life within you is a rich and unique experience. During pregnancy, your lifestyle and your state of mind will directly affect the baby growing inside of you. But it is often difficult to adopt a calmer pace and expectant women experience feelings of doubt and apprehension from time to time.
Strengthen Prenatal Bonding
From the 26th week of pregnancy, your baby will become progressively more responsive to familiar sounds in the natural environment – the beating of your heart, your breathing – as well as external sound stimuli such as voices, music and song. The abdominal wall filters out and muffles high-pitched sounds. However, baby can hear low frequency sounds like dad’s voice or low notes.
The tinkling of the maternity necklace has a calming effect on the mother-to-be. The unborn child immediately senses these posit ive vibrations and the melody of the pendant is like a soft whispering in baby’s ear.
Reassure Your Newborn
It has been proven that newborns recognize certain sounds heard during pregnancy, like their mother’s heartbeat, and that this is a source of comfort for them.
Place your chiming pendant securely inside your ILADO comforter. Its soft melody will remind your little one of the feeling of security and well-being inside the womb, and help your newborn to peacefully adapt to the outside world.
