<p>We've cleared out the 3rd bedroom and turned it into a birth room. It's so exciting. We have a lock on the outside so the kids can't get in. The midwife has left her emergency equipment in case she doesn't make it in time, so there's oxygen etc just in case, and all the herbs etc. There's a small table, a birth stool (midwife's), my birth ball, a dresser with an aquarium on top and I cleaned out and sanitized the drawers and filled them with things like chux pads, herbal water, thermometer, pads etc and labeled them all. I cleaned all the walls and washed the carpets. I have sealed paper bags with sterilized towels, sheets, blankets and baby clothes all labeled. And last night we inflated the birth pool and set out the hose and water thermometer etc.It's all ready to go. It's very exciting.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>But DH and I agreed, the only thing missing is some nice art on the wall. Something to inspire me while i labor, and to make the place look friendly. He agreed that we should get some, which made me very happy. :)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So I went looking online. I bought this one,</p>

<p>But then I found these pieces of art which are AMAZING and they have really awed me, but she doesn't sell prints of them.</p>

<p>That's exactly the sort of image i want to focus on in labor. I love it. Does anyone know if there's anything like that out there that you can get prints from? This will be my Christmas present too so I want to choose something I'll love. There just doesn't seem to be much out there.</p>

<p>Oh wow, those are beautiful. What a great idea for a focal point during labor. You're right, that one in the field is awesome.</p>

<p>Wow, I really had thought about inspiring artwork.  I'll have to look into that more.  I'll lyk if I come across anything!  :)</p>

<p>Honestly, I love the one that you got!  The field one is really cool, but I guess I like the amorphous colors and general shape and feel of the print you got.  And I am NOT one to ever, ever go for abstract art.  But in this case, I like that it is kind of "less specific" in terms of yeah, that could be me! sort of vibe. </p>

<p>Your birth room sounds lovely!</p>
