Re: Tell me about your home birth!

Most HB midwives have a box of birth supplies made specifically for them through a site, so I'd ask if she has one you can look up Most of the birth supplies are really for the midwife - like the clamp, gloves, iodine, ect. The things I'd recommend for supplies for you are LOTS of pads/plastic sheets/old towels (birth is messy!! ) postpartum pads, and hydrogen proxide (to take stains out of sheets, carpets.) Other than that, cool/warm packs, a yoga ball, homeopathics (smooth birthing remedy or rescue remedy) labor drink (water, emgercen-c, lemon and honey) and rubs or massage oil. I used one with clary sage in it, it helps labor progress you you could do something like that GL!
