“Ilado maternity jewelry is reviving the ancestral Mayan tradition of bell maternity necklaces as a meaningful jewelry piece for today’s mothers. The soft chime of gorgeous pendants, a source of peace and serenity, helps mothers-to-be to bond with baby throughout pregnancy and, after the birth, soothes the newborn with its familiar melody. A quick rundown of how one works: when rolled gently, it emits a soothing and harmonious crystalline sound:
Benefit #1: Relax mothers-to-be. The soft vibrations of the maternity necklace can lead towards a state of well-being.
Benefit #2: From the 26th week of pregnancy, baby will become progressively more responsive to familiar sounds in the natural environment.
Benefit #3: Reassure the newborn. It has been proven that newborns recognize certain sounds heard during pregnancy. Place the chiming pendant securely inside the Ilado lovey. Its soft melody will remind sweet baby of the feeling of security and well-being inside the womb.”
