Hello, lovely ladies! I'm a newer doula who just moved to a new state. I found out yesterday that there's a baby expo nearby THIS SATURDAY! I'd like to rent a booth, but I'm nervous that having a crappy display will be pointless. Can any of you share ideas? I have a lot of books and equipment (birth balls, model pelvis/baby/placenta, massage tools, cloth diapers, baby carriers, etc). I was thinking of talking about maybe offering 2 minute massages for expectant Mamas or guided imagery or a sample meal plan for the week... I'm not sure what to use to decorate my booth though... I'm going to try to get a banner made and maybe some breastfeeding pamphlets. I'm nervous though because I don't want to scare off potential clients by letting them know too early what a crazy hippy I am. Haha! Any advise?

If they aren't providing tablecloths, I would get a pink/purple one from the dollar store to cover your table. 

 

Make sure you have business cards and/or brochures about your services to hand out. Chocolate is always a good idea.

 

Relax. Dress professionally.
