What's in my doula bag?
This post has been written by EVERY SINGLE DOULA!
So, here is to the millionth 'What's in my doula bag?' blog post!
Catch my Youtube Video about what is in my doula bag below!
Let's begin by talking about the type of bag options... I have tried a few different methods, but my personal preference is the Vera Bradley Iconic XL Campus Backpack. I prefer a backpack because it allows me to be hands free and able to help momma in any way she needs. My second favorite leans in the complete opposite direction - it's an open bag concept - the 31 Deluxe Utility Tote. I like this option because I can easily see what is in my bag and grab it quickly.
But this is what you really came here for - - - the STUFF!!!!

The IMPORTANT Stuff:
That is 'mostly' what I carry with me from one birth to the next. I truly feel like my doula bag is always evolving - it grows and then it slims. There are a few things that I believe really make a doula stand out - - - her HEART and her HANDS! If you can follow your heart (your intuition, your empathy, your love) and always your hands to do the work of serving, you will be an AMAZING doula!
Would you like to become a doula?
I host training's throughout the year and would love to help you navigate your doula journey.
Do you need the support of an Alabama doula?
I would love to meet with you and talk about how a doula can help support you through your next birth!
Would you like to prepare for your birth by taking a Comfort Measures Class?
You can take an in person class with me or take an online class from the comfort of your own home and schedule.
My name is Jillian and I am a Doula, Childbirth Educator, Placenta Encapsulator living in the Wilmington, North Carolina. I believe in women and that they deserve support throughout their pregnancy and births no matter what method of birth they desire. I myself am a mother to 4 girls, pregnant with a 5th (that is a boy); each of their births were vastly different.
