Re: Homebirth 'mess'

Get a TON of chux pads. Both my births were incredibly messy affairs. With my first it was mostly my water that was artificially ruputred that got everywhere, and my second is was my water as well but I did bleed considerably more. Just put chux everywhere, and if you have old towels that helps too. But really, your midwife will be doing the cleaning. No one expects a new mom to care for that stuff In the heat of labor and the time I was enjoying my new baby, I was unaware of how it all got cleaned up, but it did!
