Homebirth Supplies

Find out what kind of supplies are good to have on hand when planning for a home birth.

If you are planning a home birth with a midwife, most of our clients purchase a Birth Kit around 36 weeks pregnant. This kit contains the bare essentials for your midwifery team and includes things like sterile gloves and umbilical cord clamps. Over the years I have seen some additional items be useful at a home birth, but they are not as important as the birth kit.

This Amazon list includes items to help prepare for having a home birth, such as supplements, childbirth education, comfort items, postpartum recovery and breastfeeding essentials.

HAVE THESE ITEMS ON HAND​

Most of these items can probably be found in your home already. We have found it useful, if clients gather these items together (minus food and drink) and place them in a plastic storage bin.  

LINENS


2 sets of sheets. 
  - One set to labor on that will get stained, and a clean set for recovery.  
One unused tarp, painter’s drop cloth, vinyl tablecloth, or shower curtain. 
6 Towels 
4 Wash cloths  

 

MEDICINAL

I encourage you to think, "What would I like to help me heal after I have my baby?" 
 

Extra Bag of Depends & Chux Pads [some come in your Birth Kit, but extras are great]
Chamomile Tea Pads: Make strong chamomile tea, soak a dozen panty liners and freeze
Sitz Bath Mix and/or Epsom Salts

Witch hazel liquid or pads
