Getting Ready for Birth

What do I bring to the birth center?

As it gets closer to your due date you will want to have a bag packed for the birth center. But what are some important things to remember to bring? BioBirth Birth Center will provide your birth kit. These are the consumable supplies that are used at every birth. It will include things such as your OB pads for after birth, umbilical cord clamps, chux pads, fracture bed pan for the placenta and such. We will also gift each new baby with a BioBirth Birth Center onsie, blanket and a hat. Your baby may wear this home or you may take it home for later use.
