The usefulness of the pregnancy bola

What is the pregnancy bola used for and why is it considered the jewelry for pregnant women par excellence ? In reality, the pregnancy ball is an original ornament with soothing properties. This women's necklace pendant produces a soft sound that will rock baby in his mother's tummy. This provides the child with a state of serenity.

In the same vein, making the child listen to music in his mother's womb or simply talking to him calmly allows him to build neural connections and develop his communication and empathic skills.

It also happens that the pregnancy bola is perceived by the baby, like the heartbeat or the rhythm of his mother's breathing. This very pretty silver jewel therefore has the power to establish a link between the future mother and her child. We must not forget that according to Mexican beliefs, the pregnancy ball has the power to protect the mother and child since it attracts the benevolence and protection of angels.

The other major advantage of this jewelry for pregnant women is that it can still be used after the birth of your baby. In fact, it is possible to hang it on the newborn's cradle when you have to return to the office after maternity leave. Hearing the soft sound of the pregnancy bola will soothe and reassure the little one and fill the feeling of lack.

According to traditions, bolas are worn from the beginning of pregnancy until the last week of pregnancy. But the ideal is to wear your bola from the 15th week. It is from this period that the baby's inner ear is formed. So he will be able to hear the ringing.

When the baby has grown up, the jewelry can be worn differently. Simply remove the beads inside the pregnancy ball. Obviously, this is only possible if you have opted for a bola that can open. Either way, this pregnancy jewelry will always have its place in every woman's jewelry collection.
