This medal consists of two-parts. Together these parts form a closed circle or a standing cradle. The assembly of the two parts, from closed circle to cradle, symbolizes birth. The medal can be cast complete with text from a 3D printed model, or can be cast from the universal model and engraved by hand. In two commissioned cases, both sides of the medal and the rim where engraved by hand with text and decorations.
