These Brazilian-made birthing dolls are designed to teach young women about natural childbirth. The handmade Birthing Doll is crafted of all natural cotton and wool materials. Its cotton panties can be removed for the birth of the tiny cotton/wool baby doll.

The newborn includes an umbilical cord attached to a red felt circle that represents the placenta. The cord can be unsnapped from the baby’s stomach and returned to the mama’s belly for safe storage. The baby also has a snap on its mouth that fastens to the mama doll’s breasts to nurse.

Judging from the website, shipping is fast and the buyers are pleased with the quality of the $90 toy.
