What do I bring when I go to the hospital here as a doula?
1. Pads to share with ladies who did not bring any.
2. Soap so that I can wash my hands.
3. Toilet paper because well, it's nice to have in the bathroom.
4. Last time I brought and donated 15 cups, because all the women in labor were sharing one cup for water and there was no dish washing going on. I have lived in the jungle long enough that it didn't bother me too much at first...but then I thought about TB.
I have my kids make me a paper fan and I bring wash cloths to cool foreheads.
That is about it. The contents of my "doula bag."
