If I think of anything else, I'll post.
I won't have a midwife, but I am planning on encapsulation, which I know will help the bleeding over the next few days. If I bleed a lot during/immediately after the birth, I'm planning on just eating raw placenta - but only if necessary! Have you done that with any of your past home births? My OB mentioned a script for Cyototec in case of PPH, but I don't know how comfortable I am with that.
