Re: Homebirth 'mess'

Five births, very little blood until passing placenta (and then still not like what I see on tv shows.)

I did have a lot of fluid but I actually do not ever recall seeing much blood at all during labor and delivery.

Easiest thing I have found is to buy those flannel backed tablecloths and line the floor and bed with them. I deliver squatting so they are perfect because they allow me to move around.

I also make my bed in layers. Mattress protector,sheet,mattress protector,sheet. That way if I do end up leaking anything in the bed it is a quick and easy change.
On the hunt for smallish wool! Knit or interlock
