Akuaba (Akaba or Akapa) dolls are used by the Ashanti people who live in what is generally Ghana. They are played with by little girls to teach them how to take care of children, but they are primarily seen as a tool to increase fertility in the childless and to ensure a beautiful healthy baby by the pregnant.

The origins are unknown but it can be assumed that the doll, whose proportions are considered beautiful, would somehow transform into a real baby. Ghanian folklore has such tales. The doll is supposed to be treated as one would treat a real baby and its contentment can lead to pregnancy or a healthy baby.

 

If you're pregnant, know someone who is pregnant, want to be pregnant or know someone who wants to be pregnant, an Akuaba could be what's needed!
