Meet MamAmor, the Doll That Gives Birth
And now, ladies and gentlemen, we bring you MamAmor, the Doll That Gives Birth. (Warning: the website plays music that will make you think you're at the Lilith Fair.)
After giving birth -- complete with placenta -- she also breastfeeds. The "babies" have a snap for a mouth, which attaches to the mama doll's chest.
MamAmor dolls are made by Adriana Guerra, who, according to her website, is a doula and "the mother of three wonderful children -- born at home, breastfed and carried almost all the time -- and the wife of a loving and supportive husband." On her etsy page, Guerra says, "Creating my MamAmor dolls has been one of the most meaningful and creative ways to express my passion for birth, breastfeeding and attachment."
MamAmor dolls cost $130, or $145 for a custom job. Also available are accessories including slings, diaper bags and glasses. According to the MamAmor page on BigCartel.com, the dolls are sold out as of this writing, but a new batch is due on December 12th.
