Seems like a no brainer, right? Sure, but it's something that can easily be forgotten when rushing out the door at 2am to meet you at the hospital!
And it's not just that we pack a charger block and cord for our own phone. We often pack an additional block and some of us have portable energy sources (ie: Mophie chargers) that we slip, fully charged, into our bags.
It's just one of those things that we know if it's not in the bag, it will get forgotten and when you are rushing to the hospital or calling the midwife, you aren't thinking how much battery power does my phone have?
This way, whoever needs a charge, has access to one when we are there.
It also means that we are able to play podcasts for you if that is your wish, can look up information for you while walking the halls with you, even send messages out for you if you need or want to keep friends and family updated of your progress or arrival of the baby (with your phone of course, which it charges on our Mophie!)
Phone chargers. Super important to pack, often forgotten on your rush to the hospital, but always in our doula bag!
