birth kit!

I'm soooo excited! I just picked up my birth kit yesterday and my extra supplies are almost all ready! Washed baby clothes and now need to figure out where they go I remember thinking that it was soooo far into the future when I was going to pick it up!
Getting excited to meet the new one!

Yay! I've gathered all the supplies for our birth kit, now to just get it together in one place. We're getting really excited to meet them too!

Re: birth kit!

Where did you order your birth kit from? I'm new to homebirth (and had originally planned to go to the birth center....) so I need help! My MW gave me a list of household supplies, but I don't know what to order?

Re: birth kit!

We got our kit from a cloth diaper store in our area... My mw told me where to go to get it. Your mw will probably be able to direct you to what you need... Most of it could've been been bought at the grocery store, but it's just more convenient to have it all together and that way the mw knows exactly what she's working with.
Carrie- I have pipe dreams that if I get as much done as I can now, I'll be able to relax when I'm super huge and miserable... Don't know how reasonable it is, but trying for it!
Wow, Lisa! You already have your birth pool!? You must be due really soon?
How exciting for everyone!! It does make it seem more real!

Re: birth kit!

Yeah the pool came Monday! I haven't blown it up yet to check for leaks because I don't want DS tearing into it, so I'll do that during his nap time on Saturday. I'm 36w3d, so once we get into next week I'm cleared to birth at home! crazy, huh?!

There's a few more things my MW wants me to pick up, so I'll do that today. Then I'll be DONE gathering supplies!

Re: birth kit!

I got a present in the mail from my mom yesterday, a birthing gown! I'll have to add that to the little pile of supplies. I'm planning on having it all together and packed/sterilized by Saturday.

www.inhishands.com

They have amazing customer service and very fast shipping. I've gotten 4 birth kits from them now and they are always correct and fast. Last time the birth pool I ordered was back ordered, they went out of their way to find a replacement and over nighted it to me.
