Re: Hospital bag
The hospital bag thing kinda erks me. The midwives suggested to bring all these things and then when we came in with a small suitcase full of stuff I felt like they laughed at us. But I only brought what they suggested -- which included a fair amt of food. They had a full kitchen for us to cook in case of long labor (stuff like peanut butter and jelly, pasta, juice, snacks) course we didn't eat any of it. Though had we birthed in the birth center we would have eaten some of it afterwards.
