Hello everyone,

I'm pregnant for the third time, and planning a UC. I was wondering, besides basic towels, pads, fetoscope, etc., what do you make sure you have in regards to supplies? 

 

Also, any reading suggestions? Last labor I read emergency childbirth, spiritual midwifery, orgasmic birth, and a few others, and I'm currently in the middle of reading Anne Frye's Holistic Midwifery as I'm in Midwifery school.

 

Thanks! :)
