I think I'm pretty much set. I'll order my midwife's supply kit in a few weeks, but we can re-use most of the other items from last time like the pool, pump, adapter, hoses, tarps, mattress pads, towels, etc. I also have some watercolor paper for placenta prints, a stamp pad and "born at home" certificate, and some "born at home" t-shirts left over from a friend's homebirth that I attended a couple of months ago.

The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth Birth by Henci Goer is extremely informative & well written & every single pregnant women in this country should read it. Some folks really dig Birthing...
Oh, I'm plenty into hippy dippy. It's the hands-on birth assistance of the Farm midwives that is driving me nuts. So many internal exams! It seems like many of the moms give their midwives so much credit for their birth experiences. And the things the midwives say to some of the moms like the one about how the midwife started telling the mom during labor about how her birth experience was so much more intense than the birthing mom's or something like that.
