Crystals for Fertility, Pregnancy, and Childbirth
One of the loveliest, most thoughtful gifts I received for my birthday a couple weeks ago was from my mum. In addition to a few other magical things, she gave me crystals. But not just any crystals. She specifically asked for feminine energy type crystals, ones to help with birth.
I'm sure there are many different crystals that can work for this, but the 5 types I received are so lovely. So let's talk about them!

More about Crystals & Chakras
Crystals are said to promote healing & ward off negative energies. This theory goes back thousands of years to the ancient Egyptians who would use and wear crystals for these purposes. Modern crystal healing is also derived from Hindu & Buddhist cultures, through the concept of chakras.
We have seven charkas in our bodies:
1. Root - base of spine, our foundation & groundedness
2. Sacral - two inches below naval, connection/ability to accept new ideas
3. Solar Plexus - upper abdomen/stomach, be confident & in control of our lives
4. Heart - center of chest, ability to love
5. Throat - throat, ability to communicate
6. Third Eye - forehead in between eyes, ability to focus & see big picture
7. Crown - very top of head, ability to be connected spiritually
Different crystals are used for different chakras.
Scientifically speaking, studies have shown that they aren't actually a real medical tool. (Please don't use only them if you need medical help!)
However, people do feel better when using them. Whether it's a placebo affect, or if there is some truth to the magic of crystals, it's each individuals choice if they want to use them.
Personally, I believe that when you hold them & think about their power when meditating, it's your own power that is making you feel the positive effects happen. I think people should do whatever feels best for them & makes them happiest. If you like crystals, who cares what anyone thinks, go do you!
Tip: You can charge you crystals in the light of the full moon
