I started collecting things before I was a student as an assistant in a birth center. I had my own stethoscope for adult and baby, BP cuff, and fetoscope. Then I watched eBay and bought things like forceps (sponge, tweezer type), scissors (variety), hemostats (never used them yet!). Then as a student I acquired more things like doppler, oxygen tanks, herbs, homeopathics, metal specula.
Most of the midwifery texts will have that authors' dream list of supplies. Check them out and prioritize it for yourself (cheapest to most expensive or something like that).
