What is a pregnancy necklace?
The Harmony ball is an Indonesian tradition – a pendant worn by pregnant Balienese women to protect their baby from dark spirits. In western culture the necklace is worn by expectant mothers to create special bond with their baby.
How does a harmony necklace work?
The small copper balls inside the harmony necklace produce a soothing sound which can be heard within the womb when baby’s hearing starts to develop at around four months pregnant. In theory baby will learn to recognise this soft sound and feel comforted by it. The familiar sound of the harmony ball can then continue to be used to soothe baby after birth.
