It is my pleasure to introduce you to Alice Turner, owner of Your Doula Bag & Your Doula Biz. We have been big fans of Alice’s products for quite some time now, and we’re excited to share the love today! If you’re a doula, or an aspiring doula, you will love her products! You will find everything you need to stock your birth bag. Read on to learn more about what Your Doula Bag has to offer.
Tell us about the products you offer at Your Doula Bag!
Our goal is to support doulas in their work and celebrate the profession. We offer everything from tools to bumper stickers and even offer a business management system (YourDoulaBiz).
What inspired you to create a business just for doulas? How did it begin?
As a doula and an avid online shopper I saw a void in the market when I was shopping for products for my own doula bag. I wanted to fill that void.
Give us an idea of what a day in your shoes looks like.
Most days I feel like a juggler in a circus. I have 4 kids and spend a good amount of the day dropping them off, picking them up and doing all sorts of other mom duties like homework, dinner and bedtime stories. The rest of the day is spent working. This includes most of the morning and definitely after bedtime. Work involves emails, social media, marketing, product development and management of my own doula business.
Have you had the opportunity to meet some pretty amazing people through your business? Tell us more!
I have definitely been honored to meet some of the legends in the field. My most exciting encounter was with Penny Simkin in Cancun at the DONA International conference in 2012. She sat down with me for 20 minutes and let me show her my business management program YourDoulaBiz.com.
Thank you, Alice, for donating this beautiful birth ball cover! We are slightly envious of whoever wins this!
Love & Blessings,
