Hi,
I am a homebirth midwife. My 2 daughters are starting their own little micro business and one of the things they will be doing is putting together birth kits for my clients and for several area midwives.

I am clueless where to find wholesale/bulk pricing on these items. I googled it but no real hits. I have contacted some of the individual companies like wishgarden herbs.

where else should i be looking?

well, I spent several hours on the computer with my girls and I just don't see all those great prices at wholesale costs.

I did email several including Cascade. I already order my midwife supplies from there, I didn't realize you could set up a wholesale account.

and we did find some great deals on ebay, but it is so hit and miss, not a reliable way to have inventory.

Thanks! Anyone else? Any specific companies to look at, like Cascade?

I have no advice specifically, but don't be turned off it they don't have wholesale prices listed. Call or email them anyway, they may still wholesale but not advertise the prices. If they can't help, ask who can. Most likely they won't give you the info but it doesn't hurt to try.
