They are expensive! I might check out the local places and see what else is available.

I think those cowl style round scarves are really pretty and in a neutral color would be easy for her to throw on when she runs out to a birth - plus, they are a bit more unique than a regular scarf.

ETA: the birth doll would be great - it can be a teaching model for her when she talks to younger siblings. I plan to get one when I become a midwife for just that reason.
She has an office and is in the process of opening a birthing center. Maybe something practical for that? She also loved the boob hats, so maybe I'll add a couple of those in there.

I thought of a felted purse. I know it probably wouldn't look too great if I tried to sew a lining in a regular one.

I looked through the other day but nothing jumped out at me.

I thought about a spa gc too. I feel bad that I didn't get any pics of her and the baby!

Link posted! It does get cold here, too!

I think I'm going to call her secretary tomorrow and ask her some questions about what she thinks she'd like.
