I joke with my clients that my doula bag is my ‘bag of tricks’. I adore getting it re-stocked while I await the call from my next couple, that labour has begun and I’m about to meet a beautiful little soul in the coming hours.

I thought I would share what I pack, mainly so my clients don’t double up on unnecessary purchases.
