Hello,
I am Michele James-Parham and I am a traditional homebirth midwife in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

I have created two different homebirth kits for my clients. Make sure that you are ordering the right one for your homebirth.

Custom Birth Kit -- for homebirthers who are not planning for a waterbirth or not planning to labour in a birthing pool.

Deluxe Waterbirth Kit -- for homebirths who desire to labour in a pool or who are planning a waterbirth.

You can also order the birthing pool of your choice without purchasing a birthing kit. It is best that you have your kit and pool ordered and shipped to arrive no later than your 34th week of pregnancy to ensure that everything is ready in case you go into labor before your 'due date'.

If you have questions, feel free to contact me or www.yourwaterbirth.com for help.

Peace & Love,

Michele James-Parham
Amethyst Midwitchery & Womancraft

Purchase this kit by 34 weeks gestation if you are planning to labor or birth in a birthing pool.
