Thank you, Brookie!

Remember this post from last month where I mentioned wanting to get a birth kit to have around just in case? Well, now that I'm planning to give birth at home it's more than a "just in case" necessity. So my thoughtful, sweet, wonderful sister-in-law surprised me last night with this...You're the best, Brookie!

I want to know what's in it!

I think it's got umbilical cord clamps, bulb syringe (for sucking fluids out of baby's nose and mouth), sterile gloves, giant sanitary pad, blanket, hat for baby's head, giant absorbent pad (like blue doggy potty training pad) for protecting surface area, and I think that's it... but I haven't actually pulled everything out to see.

Oh, I think it also has disposable scalpels, giant ziploc bags for the placenta, and obstetric (super anti-bacterial?) hand wipes, and gauze pads.
