One of the most treasured items in the bag, the comb... and it's not for hair. It is used to grip with the teeth of the comb on the palm. It hits pressure points that not only relieve pain but also gives your client a sense of control over the situation.
Ever try to sleep in a hospital during labor, or worse, after? Everyone always coming in every 2 minutes to check on something. Throw on one of these super comfy eye bras and people will tip toe around your room!
These are so incredible for birth... for one, your client will probably be hot at one point during their labor and this allows for a nice, cool breeze... but also, there is an element of being a 'Goddess', of being taken care of that is unmatched by someone fanning you.
This is an absolute must for the stroking massage. It works best on clothing, not so much on bare skin. You can get the nukkles from Amazon or you can purchase the hand held massage tool pictures at Dollar Tree.
Whenever possible, we love for our clients to make their own birth affirmation flags but just in case, you should have some affirmations to add to the birth space. Laminate them so they don't get all curly in your bag.
