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 who already have a birthing pool or are purchasing their pool from another company.
Deluxe Waterbirth Kit -- for homebirths who desire a nice large & sturdy pool for their waterbirth. It contains the contents of the Custom Birth Kit, the La Bassine Birthing Pool and a large 8 foot by 8 foot vinyl floor covering to protect your carpet/hardwood floor (it goes underneath your birthing pool).
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 36th 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,
Natural Attachment Midwifery
