Doulas, what do you give your clients?

Another doula practice question! I'm working on a packet of info for future doula clients. I haven't done this before but it seems like a nice resource to give. I'd like them to have local breastfeeding resources (e.g. support groups), general parenting resources (e.g. organized playgroups, places to get low-cost services/baby needs), and a few info sheets from me - on things like writing the birth plan, thinking about your options in labor, etc. What else is helpful? Doulas, what do you give your clients (if anything)? If you've used a doula, what information did you get, or would have liked to get?
