Here it is!
I would check craig's list for the doppler. I'm surprised at how many women buy expensive ones to use durng their pregnancy and then dump them on craigs list when they're done.
Having had a homebirth where I fired my midwife and transferred myself into the hospital for a difference of opinion in "care," and not having had a birth plan together for that situation (non-emergent transfer of care), I highly recommend having a birth plan ready. That said, I also strongly recommend that you realize that it's quite rare that you'll fire your midwife and transfer yourself in a non-emergent situation. SOoooo, understand that when you are transporting,...
Well, it's illegal to refuse you care, but I would bet that you will be "guided" to a repeat cesarean when the time comes unless you walk in with a baby plus three.
It IS necessary to supplement, very occaisionally. So, I would also have a sheet that talks about supplementation at the breast if the baby will latch enough to do so...and about how to supplement with an SNS and finger feeding if the baby will NOT latch at the breast. Jack Newman has some wonderful resources on his website, and is willing to share whatever info he has written, as well.

Hello! Wanted to let you all know that there will be a Rochester Hills Clothes Swap on Saturday October 23, from 9a-2p. They are only doing kids clothes this time around, but the guidelines are the same as the Lake Orion Swap...clean, folded, and sorted by size, you put them on the appropriate tables, and then take what you need. No resale. Hope you can make it, and bring some friends!

I would recommend giving them numbers for LLL (and let them know that their help is free) as well as an IBCLC (who in some cases have higher level skills, but are fairly costly). Having options is a good thing!
