In preparation for your home birth you don’t really need a lot of extra supplies, and many items you likely have already at home. There are some supplies that you can gather together to make your labor, birth and postpartum preparation seamless. It is helpful to keep your supplies in a bin, box or table covered up and ready for when labor starts. Some items like an umbilical cord ring, clamp your midwife will either suggest you purchase in a home birth kit like this https://www.radiantbelly.com/gentlemama.html or she may provide them for you.
As a midwife and home birth mama, I prepared a list with rationale of items to collect. You don’t need all of these items, but you may find many are helpful to have available.
