Mum’s in labour – quick, grab your toy doula kit!


Every so often we feature a toy that generates a lot of discussion.

The VBAC doll that we reviewed recently was one such toy, so we figured Babyologists might be equally interested in a felt doula play set.

Made by Etsy designer Mama’s Felt Cafe, the doula play set includes everything a woman in labour needs – a fan for keeping cool, a cranberry oatmeal muesli bar with removable wrapper to refuel, a heat pack (although it’s filled with rice, it can’t be heated in the microwave), a bottle of calming lavender essential oil with removable cap, some peppermints and of course a handy tote bag for the little doula on the go.

It certainly makes a terrific and original gift for a child who is expecting a sibling!

The felt doula bag is US$40 and Mama’s Felt Cafe ships internationally.
