Jason did. He emptied the water and took it down while my midwives did our stats and made sure everything was okay.

If I have a water birth (I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing yet) then DH will be the one to clean up the tub. I plan on purchasing a kiddie pool and I'm going to do whatever feels right at the time.

I have to reread the paper work, but I think my midwife and assistant do clean up. I gotta recheck that.

honestly, I don't know I was in bed cuddling with my new baby while that all got done. I think the midwives did most of it though...

DH did ours, and its one of the biggest things he regrets about having a homebirth. He said that after the older two were born in a hospital, he got to sit down and hold the baby and bond with us, and with the homebirth he had to clean up. it was 2am when she was born, and by the time he was holding Kate it had been an hour or two.

Its one reason I'm considering not having a waterbirth this time.... just so that he can have that bonding time with his first son. I WANT a waterbirth, but I don't want him to clean it up.

I know DH didn't do much clean-up help. He got to bring Kya up out of the water and hold her after about 20 minutes while I got out of the tub and cleaned up, then he stayed in the bedroom with me while most of the clean up was going on, so he didn't feel left out. I would talk with your midwives and express your concern about that part and see what they suggest...

I will talk to them about it. Kate had some breathing issues after birth that required both of the midwives attention, she had low apgars and needed some oxygen. I assume that's why DH ended up doing the clean up, but it is a concern that I want to discuss.
