Balinese HARMONY ANGEL ball (aka Bola Necklace, Bola PREGNANCY Necklace, Angel Caller), Aromatherapy locket necklace. Traditional talisman in Bali and Mexico. This pendant will make a wonderful Pregnancy or Baby Shower Gift. In many cases the pregnancy harmony ball pendant is passed on from mother to daughter and becomes a treasured family heirloom. Harmony Ball (Bola) has been worn for centuries by pregnant women in Balinese and Mayan cultures for the calming effect it can have on the unborn baby in the womb. A traditional Harmony Ball is typically made from sterling silver and contains a small bell like item that emits very subtle but audible chimes with movement, similar to the sound of wind chimes in a very soft breeze After the birth of the child, the mother will often shorten the necklace so that the harmony ball pendant is situated between her nape and her breasts so that it can be played with by the child whilst breast feeding, additionally the soothing sound of the pregnancy harmony ball emanates as the mother gently rocks her baby to sleep - this familiar sound helps reduce some of the stress that some babies encounter when feeding (of course this helps mum too). Aside from bringing a sense of calm and harmony to the wearer, the Harmony Ball (Bola) has been worn for centuries by pregnant women in Balinese and Mayan cultures for the calming effect it can have on the unborn baby in the womb. The pregnant woman will wear the harmony ball on a long chain or cord so that the harmony ball pendant rests somewhere on her ‘bump’. As the mother-to-be goes about her daily tasks the pendant will move emitting the soft chime sound which is only just audible. This sound will penetrate into the womb and will be even softer. An unborn baby will begin to hear at about 20 weeks’ gestation so your unborn baby will begin to hear your soothing voice and your loving words, and the baby will also hear the soft chime sound of the harmony ball. Of course the unborn baby will hear other sounds too however particularly in the quiet surroundings of the home away from loud noises the baby will hear the soothing chime sound every time mum moves, whilst doing her housework, or simply getting up off the sofa to make a cup of coffee and even at the supermarket or walking down a quiet street - anytime she moves. Aside from mums own voice the sound of the harmony ball will be the most frequently common sound a baby in the womb will hear (sorry Dads). The real benefit of the Harmony Ball worn during pregnancy comes after the baby is born! The real benefit comes during breastfeeding.  In the short term after coming out from the warmth and comfort of the womb breastfeeding can be a stressful period for the newborn (and that can affect mum too). Newborn babies have one priority and that is to feed. Breastfeeding is often a wonderful experience however it can be a very stressful time for baby and mum at times. Soon after birth mum will shorten up her long harmony ball pregnancy necklace so that it is now around her breastbone area so whilst breastfeeding and gently rocking her newborn the chime sound from her harmony ball will be heard by the baby. It is a familiar sound to your baby, a sound associated with warmth and comfort. In addition to mums soft soothing words as her baby feeds the newborn hears the familiar chime. We are all much more comfortable and relaxed when we are in a familiar environment with familiar sights, sounds and smells – so too is baby. As the newborn grows he/she will extend their little hand to touch that shiny thing around mum’s neck and play with it and enjoy that familiar sound. Because baby is calmer then so is mum – many of the stresses often associated with breastfeeding for some mothers, are now taken care of – not necessarily on every occasion but often enough for there to be a tangible benefit.
