Dried fruit, Knudsen's lemon lime sodas (for nausea), Cokes in glass bottles (it's a sentimental thing) to toast baby with if it's not late at night, non alcoholic sparkling soda to toast if it's late, rrl and nettles popsicles and infusions, buffalo steaks (post partum), stuff for smoothies, watermelon (and salt to put on it!), emergen-c, pear juice, and the fixin's for peanut butter and jelly, lemon luna bars. Oh, and cow milk. I also have dried fruit and nuts, but I always have that stuff around.
The birth team (homebirth) has been instructed to bring their own snacks. If I feel up to it, I will make soup in the crock pot for them, but this whole thing is all about me and my family. I also will have normal stuff I have for my kids on hand as well as a few treats for the kids. (Things I normally don't keep around like mac and cheese in the box and these lemon ice cups that they love.) I am providing coffee and tea for the team, but they will have to make it if they want it.
I gave my team a list of things they should bring for themselves: snacks, caffienated beverages, water bottles, toothbrush and toothpaste, change of clothes, deodorant, breath mints, ect. I've been told that it has been helpful for the members who don't have much experience beyond their own births. Might be worth a try for y'all having homebirths.
