I'm expecting my first baby any day now for a homebirth. We have a wonderful doula that we just are crazy about.
I'd like to get her a personal gift to express how great she's been during this whole process. But I have no clue what an appropriate gift might be. Is it okay to give personal gifts to doulas? What kinds of things would be appreciated/appropriate? Have any of you received gifts you especially liked?
Also, I was wondering about her and the midwife during our homebirth. Is it expected/traditional for us to make sure there's food for them and everything? I just don't want to make some awful faux pas by not providing snacks or food for them if that's something that's sort of expected.
Thanks for any feedback.
