|This is the Farm RD, what you see when you first drive in to the Farm.|
sheets - 2 sets (one set should be ones you don't mind throwing away when you're done - and we did throw ours away!)
underpads (you know, the big ones that go on the bed)
trash bags (lawn and leaf)
container (with lid) for the placenta (What!?)
And of course all the normal stuff:
clothes for us
clothes for babe
(no joke, those were on the list)
I know I'm forgetting some, but you get the gist.
Okay, you may be asking, "Why did you have to bring all that?"
|This is the cabin where I delivered my daughter. Yep, no medical supplies.|
The Farm is not a medical facility. They do not provide the medical supplies. When it came time to deliver, Stacey came with her midwife kit (More on that later) and that's it. We had to pack out all of our waste and dispose of the placenta (also more on that to come). It was imperative that I bring all of it or, I don't know, I guess I'd still be pregnant! Fortunately, most of the medical stuffs WERE packed. You know what I didn't have? The baby's bag! Mom packed up some little ditties that worked temporarily. Haha, and once I got to the Farm, I realized that my suitcase was packed with underwire bras! Really! Who wears those after delivering!
