Hello from Ives & Christy
Our desire is that the ula and us blog inspires, educates, and provides practical tips and tricks to help you conquer your individual summits.
Not another hospital bag list...
This one is from two mamas and all the advice they received from friends and family along the way.
During the last couple of months of pregnancy, nesting sets in and it feels like your life becomes a wide variety of "to-do" lists. There is a list for everything: from nursery, meal prep, birthing plans/classes, and what to pack for the most exciting trip of your life. Oh yes, if you chose a hospital birth then you need to plan and pack a hospital bag to get you through labor, delivery, and those first few days as a new family. Our goal was to take the guess work out of packing for you.
Christy and I are delivering at the same hospital and they are PREPARED. They have birthing balls, labor peanuts, music players, rocking chairs, diapers/wipes, and a lot of other goodies to make this experience easier for a new mama. Check with your delivery unit to see what they provide for laboring mamas.
The countdown is on mama and you are getting ready to meet that stranger that has been growing inside for the past 9 months. WOW. Take a deep breath and process the power of that.
