So I was wondering how many of you had to buy birth kits? And who was given a list of items to collect them selves? Originally I was given a list and most of the midwives I have preceptored with did the list. But since I am on strict bed rest my midwife decided to do a kit to make it easy. I am just concerned that it will be more expansive.

I ended up buying a kit from midwives, never even knew they had one LOL, I thought I would have to go and buy one by one all the items, but nope, they had it all ready, I think I still need to get few items, but so far I didnt even look at the list, I know I can have this baby even if I dont get anything else, so I am not too worried or in too much hurry. I know they are not charging us for some items in the kit because they get them for free. So in this case I might actually be saving money on the kit but I am not really sure.

My midwife provides the birth kit. She also gave me a list of some basic thing I should have on hand, but nothing big or expensive (stuff like blankets, plastic floor coverings, stain treaters, etc...)

I was given a list of basics to have and then a website where my midwife lists a birth kit she put together. It is at 1cascade.com

I've done it both ways and it was about the same cost. The first time I had a list and bought things myself and the second time she had a kit with In His Hands Birth Supply / pregnancy herbs, natural child birth, child labor and delivery but I was able to take off items that I already had on had so it cut down the cost.

Mine also has me order a kit from In His Hands, but also has a small list of things to collect myself like cotton balls and old towels, etc.

There were things in the birth kit I was kind of annoyed at having to buy, and for any future baby, I'll be able to buy just the things I still need from it from the same website.

I have a basic list but most of it is things people just already have in their home or would have for a new mom anyway. Gentle Birth Care.com
