Knitted Uterus
Well, a good friend who is a fellow doula and childbirth educator asked me to knit her a uterus that will hold "baby" during demonstrations of how babies come out and the uterus dilates. Anyone know of any patterns?

You guys should ... after all, this is the home of the ladies who know where to find weenie warmers!

Thanks in advance,
Alison

PS. I'm thinking of doing a K2tog, yo coupled with an I-cord to show how a cervix dilates. Whaddya think? Or should I simply do a really snug ribbing instead?

In case you guys haven't seen this, I thought I'd add it to the mix. It can be the 'before' model! :rofling:
