Fans! The second addition to my Doula Bag! Sometimes, you get hot during labor, and that's when these little gems come in handy. They fold up nice and small, and still pack a cool punch when you need it most. Not only are they good for mom, but the doula bennifits from them too. Yay! That's two birds with one fan. [: They can also be used to help a laboring person keep their rhythm during contractions, which of course keeps their ritual intact. Having a ritual is so helpful in dealing with contraction pain, especially when you are aiming for a med free birth.
As a laboring person, did you like having a fan (or something similar) available during labor?! How was a fan used for you? Just to cool off? Or something else creative?
Doulas, how have you used a fan?! Do you have them in your bag?! #fan#cooloff#pregnancy#labor#doula#birthsupport#laborsupport#birthdoula#bellinghamdoula#bellinghampregnancy#bellinghamwashington#washington#whatcomcounty#skagitcounty
