Birth Kit 

We ask that all our clients purchase a Birth Kit by 34 weeks. The Birth Kit can be ordered on-line or collected individually. It is important to have the Birth Kit available and in plain sight at your home about 3 weeks before your due date.  Remember we may be coming to your house in the wee hours of the night. So be ready.
