Preparing Your Bed For Birth:
When you think you are in labor make your bed by putting the sheets you want for postpartum on first. Next, put a waterproof mattress protector (2 cheap shower curtains work fine). After that, put the sheets you don’t mind getting soiled by birth. It is a good idea to put kitchen trash bags over pillows and place a pillowcase on top to protect them. After your birth, we will strip the soiled sheets off your bed while you are in the shower. A clean bed will be ready for you and your baby to rest in.
