Tonight is my home visit. Yikes! I’m 36 weeks and 3 days, which is “close enough” to 37 weeks (the usual point at which home visit occur). This means that I have to have all my birth supplies gathered up and ready — both the ones that I bought (which came in the mail last week) and the ones that I have to find around the house. Some are being reused from my last birth. Some are brand-new. Some have to be sterilized. There’s a lot to get ready!
In case you’re curious, I thought I’d share with you what’s in my birth kit, and what we’ll be using the items for.
(These are just the supplies *I* provide — my midwives will be bringing additional supplies!)
What this mom did not expect while expecting, and why it was magical!
