This is the first in a series on tools we bring to a birth. Subscribe to be notified as future installments become available.
Many doulas bring a variety of tools to the birthing room - massage tools, lotion, heat packs, etc. - but the tools that will be the most useful won't fit in the suitcase. Who your doula is as a person and as a professional has a far more profound influence on her ability to support you than any device she has in her possession.

They are passionate about pregnancy, birth, baby care, and parenting.
