The birth of our 5th baby is just a couple of months away!
I decided to do a birth kit post to show you what I have for our birth.
I had purchased a pre-assembled birth kit,but after going through it I decided I didn't really
need all the items that came in it.
So,here are my BASIC ESSENTIALS for my birth.
|La Bassine Birth pool|
(not shown-liner and cover)
|A 25 foot drinking water safe hose and a battery operated submersible pump for the birth pool.|
We already have the connecting adapter attached to the bathroom sink
|30 Chux pads-several sizes,some were left over from my last homebirth|
2 plastic-backed bed covers
|1 roll of paper towel|
1 medical scrub brush
Square cut gauze
|An old flat sheet|
A shower curtain (for waterproof covering of bed etc)
A waterproof bed pad
Plastic drop cloth (painter style)
|Blood pressure monitor|
ReignBow Birth Herbal remedy kit
Aluminum dish for the placenta
|2 styles of postpartum pads-one is wider for immediate use|
1 Peri bottle (although I have a second one from our last homebirth)
