My birth kit came in the mail yesterday!! I, of course, immediately rummaged through it...I was so excited to see the little pink and blue striped newborn hats! I think it might finally be sinking in that there is going to be a BABY around here in a few weeks.

On a funny note, the place that I ordered my birth kit from must have re-used a box to ship it, because on the side of the box was a big label that said "STERILE LUBE JELLY-854 COUNT". Hope the FedEx guy had a chuckle at that.

ROFL that reminds me of my last job where my boss ordered a lot of 'miscelleneous cheap boxes.' Turns out they were TAMPAX cartons ROFL.. we never used them to ship anything.

Sooo exciting! Isn't it awesome that we're all getting down to the end now?!

I got mine yesterday, too, from my own clinic
It has large and small chux pads, a peri bottle, a baby hat, garbage bags, and a cold compress. There were maxi pads in there but I donated them back to the clinic as they are not the plastic-free eco friendly ones I prefer. I forgot to get a sitz bath herbal pack.

I was wondering about this. My mw has depends and disposable nb dipes on the list, I really prefer not to use either. I have older pf's to use for both myself and the babe that are so stained and wore that it won't matter how they end up. I don't see the need to spend the money, or use the nasty plastic stuff.

I also have mamacloth all ready to go, but realistically won't use them with the heavy flows immediately after birth as I won't be in any shape to wash them. I will wait a couple of days, or until the 24 pads I bought run out! I bought Naturacare ones: non-bleached, no plastic, no gel, no dry-weave, just paper.

I do not have any local places that sell things like that..... I had hoped we would make it up to St Louis before the baby is born though.

Do you mean midwife? Or the people I got the birth kit from? My brain's not working too well right now!!!

My midwife is Evelyn Muhlhan and I just ordered my birth kit from a sheet she gave me (I assume you were asking about the mw!)

Just had my 35 week (I got off schedule a month back) appt yesterday, our home visit is on the 22nd at almost 37 weeks.

When are you usually in her office? We are there on Thursdays around 4 or 4:30 (not every Thursday obviously!) Wouldn't that be cool if we have run into one another!!!

yeah - I make them up myself from herbs and sea salt. We have them at the office. They are beautiful, smell good, and are really good for healing.
