Education is the Key to a Positive Birth Experience
5. Take care of payment(due 1 month prior to due date)
6. Get a small cooler ready(a bit bigger than a six pack cooler)We tell our mamas to fill it with snacks for the hospital then they don’t forget it.
7. Put cooler in your car so you for sure have it when baby is born(nurses will put your placenta in a ziplock or a plastic container and then fill your cooler with ice)
8. TEXT US WHEN IN ACTIVE LABOR… Text if it’s in the middle of the night(Christal will need a phone call for pickup in the nightime to wake her) – notice will give us time to plan our day around your baby. Some hospitals have a deadline as to when we need to retrieve your placenta so notice will help us form a plan and keep things smooth.
After baby is born and you have bonded for at least an hour – one of us will meet your partner out front and pickup your placenta(sometimes your doula will meet me or we’ll meet close to my house if I’m on the way home). Bonding with your baby is VERY important, smell that baby, touch that baby – this is a once in a lifetime time frame…stretch it out for as long as you can!
We will process your placenta and have it back to you as soon as possible! Almost always before you leave the hospital.
