I just placed the order for the birth supplies that we’ll need. I purchased from In His Hands Birth Supply. Here’s my list: witch hazel, mesh panties, overnight pads, mattress cover, plastic covering (for the floor), 30×36 underpads, peri bottle, peri cold packs. I also found a place called Midwifery Mercantile that carries those huge 17″ postpartum pads just like the hospital gives you!
I’m trying to get excited about everything again. It’s hard because after the whole where’s the placenta thing along with the blood pressure, I’m really kind of freaked out. I want this home birth so bad but I’m terrified that something will risk me out of it.
