Born on the Land with Helping Hands
If you are not going to have your baby at home, it is a good idea to pack a bag to take with you. Pack the bag well in advance of your expected due date. Some things you will need include a housecoat, loose nightgown, a nursing bra, slippers, several pairs of underwear, comb or brush, make-up, clothes to wear home, clothes, diapers and a blanket for the baby. Make sure you have phone numbers of people you will want to get a hold of—friends, relatives, midwives, health care provider etc.
