THIS LISTING IS FOR A DISCOUNT MAPLE DILATION BOARD. The board may have any of the following that has been sanded and fixed: dent, dark glue seams, fuzzy cut, knot, or other natural or production flaws. The dark seams are not cracks, just where the glue used to hold the lumber together was darker than usual. All boards are perfectly fine for use still.
Ready to ship. Crafted from maple wood with engraved numbers beside each hole indicating which centimeter measurement the hole is. It can be hung on the wall for display simply from the top hole resting on a hook. The wood is 1/2-inch thick and the diameter is 12-inches.

This board functions both as a learning tool and piece of artwork, portraying the cervical dilation process women go through during labor and birth, beginning with one centimeter dilated up to a full ten centimeters. For those practicing how to decipher between the different sizes, this board will be a wonderful help. It also is a beautiful representation of birth, pregnancy, and womanhood. Do you see the baby curled up? The largest hole suggests a head and the body curves around as if cradled in a mother's womb.
