Fan And Feather Knit Baby Afghan

Posted on: June 7, 2009

I have been busy making a beautiful fan and feather baby blanket for one of the teen moms I will be taking care of in July. I love the pattern. The shape of it reminds me of ocean waves. I have a meditation that I will be reading to the mother about waves of the ocean. I hope that every time she uses it for her baby she will remember her special day. Childbirth is such a natural process and I want to help laboring mothers get through it as best they can. There have been many times as a labor and delivery nurse where I have guided mothers away from their labor rooms and into a quiet place within. It is what I loved to do. I would ask them questions like…..Where did you go on your honeymoon? Do you like the beach? What would be your ultimate vacation spot? I remember once asking a patient where would she like to be and she said on her horse. I took her on a journey on her horse at the beach riding through the waves. I told her to picture her waves of pain going out the the ocean. I asked her to envision the sights and sounds around her. Every child’s birth is an adventure……..I am blessed to be a part of it once again.
