I have a friend/co-worker who is wanting to birth alone (with her partner) and she came to me for advice since I'm a doula/student midwife. However, I don't have any cheat sheets or PDFs to give her.
I had some on hand a few years back when another friend had a UC, but have since lost them!
Can someone email some to me, please?

She could get a copy of Heart & Hands. It's usually only about $23 on amazon and it's a great midwifery text.
This is good (especially page 1!):
I love that page 6 says "There is no hurry to cut the cord."
Midwife (CPM, LDM) and homeschooling mama to:

Also http://www.amazon.com/Emergency-Childbirth-Gregory-J-White/dp/0934426015! My husband truly appreciated this book though we hope to not have to use it!
A great book to have on hand as it is easily referenced. Although I do know that advice about folding baby in half to resuscitate is outdated and not to be done any longer!
I also highly recommend Heart and Hands! :)
