Project Description

HOME BIRTH INFORMATION

We would like to welcome you to the wonderful world of homebirth. The following information will help prepare you for your upcoming home birth. If you have any questions, we’re always happy to help you with them. You will need to attend a Childbirth Education class if this is your first baby, or you haven’t attended a class in the last five years.

HOMEBIRTH SUGGESTED READING

We like to encourage you to read as much as possible on homebirth. It is very important that you make this an educated decision. Below are various books that you might find interesting. It is not a complete list, but it is a good start. Your local library should have some of them or your childbirth instructor may have books to loan you. We have most of these books, as well as several birth videos. If you would like to check one out, please let us know.

“Just as a woman’s heart knows how and when to pump, her lungs to inhale, and her hand to pull back from fire, so she knows when and how to give birth.”

Virginia Di Orio

At Special Delivery, we use “In His Hands” for all of our birth supplies. All clients are required to purchase one of these Birth Supply Kits for your birth (both at home and in the birth center). Each kit comes with the medical supplies needed for your birth. Remember to ask for Ruth Cobb’s Kit, it has ALL of the homebirth supplies she needs.

For our clients who choose to have an ultrasound, there are two different facilities we work with. If you have insurance or SoonerCare, they will most likely pay for this fee but it can vary based on your insurance plan. For self-pay clients, you will need to pay directly to the ultrasound provider for your ultrasound.

Oklahoma City Area – Ultrasound Unlimited

Tulsa Area – Servant Imaging
