Are you thinking about having a home birth and not sure what to prepare? This handy and free downloadable resource sheet is perfect if you’re wondering what you need to prepare. It includes some suggestions of where you can hire a pool from for those that are based in the UK. It also includes an extensive list of the items you may want to consider having on hand to create your magical birth environment.
Home birth is actually very simple in terms of preparation, but if you’ve never given birth at home it can seem daunting! Working with a doula can be a great way to have the support you need to achieve your ideal birth. Many of these suggestions have been built up over time through my training and work as a doula, as well as my personal experience.
Antenatal learning plays a vital role in deciding the birth environment that’s right for you and your specific situation. I work with countless pregnant people both in my group courses and in a one to one setting. Giving birth in your house is often a more relaxed, intervention free way to bring your baby into the world. The absolute joy of getting into your own bed afterwards is bliss!
