WSD Lending Library

Books

The WSD library is available to Doula clients for borrow during pregnancy and into the first couple months of postpartum. You can browse the currently available books on the WSD Libib library. I'll remove books as they are borrowed and add them back when returned. These books include topics about childbirth, preparing for birth, pregnancy support, partner support, breastfeeding, postpartum support, infant care, toddler care, and more. Enjoy.

The Spinning Babies® Belly Mapping book is the most popular. To purchase this book as it is often checked out, visit the Spinning Babies website!

Rebozo

I always bring a Rebozo to prenatal visits for pregnancy support if needed, labor & birth support and postpartum visits for closing or wrapping support. I maintain a beautiful selection of Rebozos for borrow or for sale to clients (Doula clients or childbirth class students). Ask me about colors and prices. A white Rebozo is available for borrow for sacred occasions. These Rebozos are beautifully handmade in Mexico and purchased as close to the source as possible. In an effort to preserve the culture and sacred gift of the Rebozo, I will not make a profit off the sale of Rebozos. 

I offer Rebozos to clients only, at cost.

Bengkung Belly Binding

I currently only have enough to support my clients. Clients may decide to purchase the one they use during postpartum or they can return it. A deposit on the binding may be required. Please do not cut or trim the binding. Please ask for care instructions before washing. Each binding is washed twice with free & clear detergent (no fabric softener) before lending to clients.
