I was being interviewed by the amazing Energy Muse BLOG POST the otherday about my book- THE MINDFUL MOM TO BE and we got to talking crystals and birth . . .
Energy Muse – Do you ever use crystals for childbirth? If so, which ones are your favorites and how do you use them?

ME-I LOVE having women hold chunks of black tourmaline in their hands during labor, visualizing the stones pulling out any fear, doubt or pain from their body. Also I can’t get enough of selenite ! It’s like pure light, it opens your crown chakra , cleanses negativity and removes energy blocks While helping to bring more light into the physical body —Babies are drawn to it. I used to have my mothers hold it by their heart, but the babies would go up to the stone instead of out into the world. Now, I place it on a table in front of the birthing mama to guide the baby out. I also place a rose quartz for love on her heart, hematite by their feet to ground their energy and a Amethyst chunk under the birth bed to hold a space of peace and protection and help connect them with their intuition.
