Birth Kit Information
For current clients looking to order their birth kit:
PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE PAGE PRIOR TO ORDERING YOUR KIT!
There are important optional add-on's for your birth kit. We will have discussed these prior to your ordering the kit. If we have not yet discussed these items, please talk to me before you order! If you miss something and go back to order after your kit has shipped, you will be charged extra in shipping and risk those items not arriving in time for the birth.
-If you have an Rh negative blood type, or if you want to know your baby or partner (or both) blood type, you will need to add on the Eldon Cards. (toggle the drop down menu to "yes" on the question that asks "Are you Rh Negative?")
-If you have opted to use eye ointment, oral Vitamin K drops or a shot of Vitamin K for your baby, you will need to add whatever of those you want to your order.
-If you will want the Newborn Screening Exam you need to add the neat nick infant heel lancets.
-If you are planning a water birth: you need to order your tub as well, see the very bottom of this page for a link to the website where you can order tubs.
**ALERT!** The "protection plus" undergarments do run small, we recommend sizing up!
Order your kit at 36 weeks to ensure it arrives in time for your "due window." Check your kit contents compared to the packing list and make sure everything was packed correctly and nothing was missed. Pull out the large cloth pad (pinkish on one side and white on the other) and run in through the wash a couple times with your normal laundry and return it to the birth kit. (It's not absorbent if you don't wash it - so please be sure it gets washed.)
Don't forget there's more to do! You need to also gather your supplies from the "birth kit and supplies" list into one big box / cubby. (This paper is in your client portal with a list of what to gather.)
If you have ANY questions or get confused, please call and let's talk before you order :)

Remember that we carry air pumps to inflate, and sump pump to drain. You do NOT need a liner, fishy net, air pump or drain pump. Just the tub, hose and adapter (If you WANT to inflate it yourself before we arrive, then you will need your own air pump.)
Remember to gather the other supplies on your list as well.
