I've seen a few mentions recently about people planning home births, and I was hoping we could have a check in to see how we're all feeling. I know we have a few things that will be different than for the majority of the women on the board planning a hospital birth.
1. Will this be your first baby or your first at home? First baby for me!
2. Do you have any specifically homebirth anxieties? I've developed a bit of a complex about going 'late' and not being able to stay with my midwife, who I love, past 42 weeks
3. What is in your 'birth kit', or the equivalent of the hospital bag to pack? Selfish question because I don't have a clue. Obviously I'll have all my clothes, toiletries and the babies things at the house already, and I know the midwife has a more 'medical' list (pads, etc) to get, but I feel like I should be packing something else and I just don't know what it is
