Postpartum Doula (1 hour)
A postpartum doula comes to your home after the baby is born and does whatever is necessary to help mom needs to do to care for her new baby. A big part of this is education and some doulas specialize as lactation consultants to help with breast-feeding. You can find a doula at Doula Match.
Raising money for this kit could be a great theme for a baby shower.
