The Evolution of MamAmor Dolls - Part I

June 09, 2011

 

MamAmor Dolls were born by accident!  

It was while expecting my third child, and while taking a Birth Doula training course, when the trainer showed me a birthing doll.

I immediately thought ...how brilliant! I will make one for my kids so I can prepare them better for our planned homebirth!...It was the perfect toy, at the perfect time!

Since I had done some sewing and stuffed animals in the past, I felt confident that I was going to make a great birthing doll, but it wasn't that easy!

The first doll was small, light and it looked more like a test doll. I put some hair on her but I didn't put eyes as I realized that I wanted something different. My kids didn't think so....so they put a blue face on her!

I looked for patterns on the internet and I took some books about dolls from the library, but didn't find anything close to what I had envisioned. Then, I decided that I would put all that together and make my own and very unique birthing and breastfeeding doll.

 A second doll was created...the very first MamAmor Doll! 

 She was tall and pale, and able to give birth and breastfeed her newborn baby. My kids welcomed her with a lot of love and enthusiasm, and my friends and family were so fascinated with the concept that stated to suggest that I should make a few more mamas and try to sell them.

I felt very supported and encouraged to do so... and the first generation of MamAmor Dolls was created!

 ...And the adventure began!
