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...)
