Having a home birth was one of the most zen experiences of my life, but it required a fair amount of research, forethought and preparation. Think about all the little things a hospital keeps in stock for new moms: heat/cold packs, gauze, bed sheets, disposable underwear, disinfecting wipes, pads, diapers… the list is endless. Unfortunately, you’ll pay a pretty penny for any items you use in a hospital, and that’s one of the coolest things about home birth: you won’t be overcharged for supplies, since you buy them yourself! I did hours and hours of research in preparation for my home birth, and I found that I had everything I needed and wanted. This post does contain affiliate links, but there’s nothing I’ve listed here that I didn’t actually have on hand and use for my home birth. I’ve sifted through my order history and decided these were the products I’d buy again.
