My sister is Wiccan and pregnant. Is there a good gift I could give her to get her through labor?

My sister is pregnant with her first child and I think she's getting anxious about labor. She's Wiccan and often carries around stones, leaves, and seeds that she says have properties that help her in given situations. I'd really like to give her something like that to give her some encouragement during labor.
I know nothing about Wicca. I tried researching it, but there is so much different information about Wicca that I feel lost. The only thing I found was something about willow bark helping with postpartum recovery but that's made into tea. I really want to give her something she could hold or smell, like aromatherapy, not something she would ingest (you're not supposed to eat during labor anyway).
Is there anything I could give her that is helpful in childbirth, or brings strength and calm in general? Or, failing that, something that would help her postpartum? I know of lots of things I could get her that aren't related to Wicca, but I also know that if I got her a present related to her religion it would bring her extra comfort.
