We received our midwife’s homebirth kit! We weren’t sure of all the supplies it would include, so we’re excited. Although she’ll bring oxygen, extra healing herbs, & a few pharma remedies in case of afterbirth hemorrhage, the kit includes waterbirth items & everything from gloves to sheets to medical supplies to iced postpartum perineal pads to tinctures to mesh panties…even down to a cap for baby.
So we’ve setup a table in our bedroom for her to have a workstation [once she unpacks the box], plus a few extra things we picked up from the store to aid in convenience. We already have a hospital bag packed, in case of transfer or emergency, so that stays in my truck… the kit includes our necessities…so we are all set.
