Not one but TWO garbage bags no less.
One can never really have enough garbage bags... If I was planning a homebirth, I'd probably have the whole house plastic-wrapped :)
First of all, thanks for commenting on my blog--my first legit comment-yay! Second, this post has me chuckling. I had a homebirth with my last and while it was fine and all, this kind of thing is why I'll be headed back to a birthing center in January! The house and carpet were a mess (bad garbage bag placement?). My poor husband felt totally overworked by all the tub filling, cleaning, etc. He might be the most relieved!
That's too funny - most home birth people have nothing but good things to say but I always thought it seemed like a lot of work. I was also happy that I didn't believe everyone who said it wasn't messy when I saw our neighbours toss-out their mattress after they had a home birth. Plus, why would I turn down unlimited hot water? :)
