This award winning doll received both "Most Creative" at the 2006 Foster Old Home Days fair, Foster, RI and "Best in Show" at the 2006 Woodstock Fair, Woodstock, CT.

She is anatomically correct, as is her newborn son!
Her embellishments include a wedding ring, earrings and necklace and her son has a tiny belly button, made with a real button to which the umbilical cord attaches.

She makes a great addition to any midwifery practice, or for any birth professional that works with siblings.


The pattern is for the experienced crocheter and includes all information for making the Mama and baby (with detachable placenta and umbilical cord) as well as the maternity clothes for the Mama. Suggestions for embellishment are included.
Finished doll measures approximately 15" and the baby approximately 4.5"

You will receive an email attachment (in .pdf format) as soon as I receive verification of payment.

(If you would rather be snail-mailed a hard copy, please contact me to arrange it.)
