Bed raisers or bed linens
From week 37 onwards during pregnancy you need bed blankets (or bed raisers) to raise your bed to 80 centimeters.

Bed or pot for delivery
A pot or bedpan is a mandatory part of a home birth. With this metal bedpan the midwife catches the placenta.
Back support for delivery
A back support is useful for childbirth. You can fold out the backrest a little and place it under your pillow against heartburn. After delivery, when your little one is there, you can use a back support to tilt your mattress upwards so that you are better supported on your bed. That is also more pleasant when feeding the baby.
Maternity products such as a shower stool, shower chair or bath board

With a bath board you can cope with your contractions in different poses. You can also sit on the shower in the bath.
