I had to provide towels, blankets (old sheets and such) and buy the birth kit. I was given a list of things to have at the birth. Talk to your midwives about that. My birth kit is listed on a site where my midwife creates what she will need and then I just order that kit.

My 2nd baby was my first home birth and this baby will be my 2nd home birth. The mess wasn't big, I birthed on land over a few layers of towels. My midwives cleaned it up and did the laundry. They even did dishes.

I had on my list to get a plastic sheet for our bed and even a shower liner to help with messes for a birth tub or land birth, however I decided to do it.

The biggest thing I am glad that I had at my birth (at the end of nov in northern michigan!) was a fan! I got so hot and loved that fan haha.
