Who do you want at home with you for your immediate delivery? Your midwife will provide a list of everything you need for your home birth, much of which can be purchased as a kit online. This will include items like a peri bottle, plastic sheets, under pads, sterile gloves, plastic cord clamps, mesh panties, a digital thermometer and condoms you fill them with water and freeze them to use as ice compresses after birth. You should have nutritious easy-to-fix foods for your labor, including yogurt, meal bars, crackers, broth and frozen juice bars, as well as an electrolyte replacement drink such as Gatorade.
While regulations vary from state to state, most midwives can carry certain drugs, such as Pitocin in case of hemorrhage, oxygen, resuscitation equipment, IVs, antibiotics to treat group A strep, equipment necessary to monitor and record vital signs on both mother and baby and other first aid equipment, Palmer said. They should have the ability and training to suture as well as administer medications to the newborn, like eye ointment and vitamin K.
If complications crop up, you or your baby could die. You should make sure both your partner and the midwife know how to get there, and make sure a hospital overnight bag is in the trunk, just in case.

But your midwife should be monitoring both you and the baby very carefully after this point for signs of exhaustion, said Dr. In these cases, if she goes to the hospital, is given an epidural and injected with a little bit of Pitocin to induce contractions, the labor progresses quickly.

Beverley Spencer. Evangeline Colbert. What is Acupuncture? Back again are even more amazing birthing tales, including those from women who were babies in earlier editions and stories about Old Order Amish women attended by the Farm midwives. Also new is information about the safety of techniques routinely used in hospitals during and after birth, information on postpartum depression and maternal death, and recent statistics on births managed by The Farm Midwives. From the amazing birthing tales to care of the newborn, Spiritual Midwifery is still one of the best books an expectant mother could own.
