Please ask your home birth supply questions here! How are you ladies coming along with gathering up your supplies?
I just got my home birth supply list and I'm really excited to start gathering things up!
I just researched why garden hoses are toxic and was totally shocked .... it's because they are made with PVC and lead!!! Ahh ... I can't believe was letting my little babies swim in lead water last summer! And then a drinking water hose that is lead and PVC free ... is the same price as one that's toxic! Even wal-mart sells drinking water hoses. Why isn't this a well known fact?! That's crazy!
So, needless to say I bought the safe, lead free/pvc, drinking water hose! I don't want my baby born into lead water!
Have you ladies heard about this faucet pump that hooks up to your sink and syphon's water out? My doula was telling me about it, but I don't know if I need the rest of the fish aquarium pump to go with it?! She's supposed to ask her last client where she got it and how it works. Anything to make the cleanup easier!
