Birth control, the crochet way

OK: I’m female AND a biologist, and looking at this one freaks ME out!


I’m all in favor of appreciating the beauty of female anatomy and miracle of childbirth and all, but this pasty, long-limbed newborn doll with a detatchable umbilical is nothing compared with its laboring parent, who, in this photo from its etsy creator CozyColeman, looks a lot like Grendel’s mom. It’s as NSFW as crochet gets, I guess, so it’s below the fold.


Yikes! Maybe I’m being uncharitable, but I think if you want to make the thought of pregnancy and childbirth horrifying yet eerily fascinating to your pre-teen daughter, this is clearly the doll for you.

Via Regretsy.

    Looks more Gelfling than human to me. I think we might be witnessing the birth of Jen.

    That’s, um, grotesque.

    I would have to say that it is evocative. However, I could see that it might appeal to certain persons who are into home birth, midwifery, and alternative childbirth preparation.

    I actually yelped out load when I got below the fold.

    This would make a brilliant clip in a Rob Zombie film. Produced en masse, we could solve the pre-teen pregnancy problem. Yikes!

    I suppose if you wanted to scare your child in to not having a baby this would be the ideal method!
