You have prepared for the big day and now you have to begin your packing. Whether you are choosing a hospital or home birth, you will need to have a bag prepared and ready.
Google searches will show a long list of birth supply lists, we have curated a few lists here from local midwifery clinics and hospitals.
If you are choosing a homebirth, your midwifery clinic will provide you with some basic items. The rest of the supplies you will need to gather. Most items, you will likely have already in your home. There is no need to go out and purchase brand new items, second hand or borrowing is fine.
