  1. Looks like a good list to me!

    Goldenseal powder for the cord stump (or whatever you like to use).

    Peri bottles (I like to have my own on hand after labor to use. I put a dropper-full of goldenseal tincture in a bottle of warm water for healing sore tissue).

  2. You are going to Emma, right? We live five minutes from her, so if you need anyone to help with the girls or forgot something let me know and I will see what I can do to help.
