Tonight, the Fool and I went to another childbirth preparation class. The instructor was talking about how babies are positioned when the mother goes into labor. She had all kinds of props to illustrate her point - a big model pelvis, a small baby doll and a knitted uterus!
It looked like a bag with a ribbed opening and drawstrings running the length of the bag to simulate some kind of ligament.
So she stuffed the baby doll into the bag and started showing us how the cervix (depicted in 2 x 2 ribbing) stretches to accommodate the baby's head, etc,. etc., etc.
I couldn't concentrate, though. See, the uterus was striped. Blue and brown. And I found that highly distracting.
