Planning a homebirth

With less than two months til I am full term with baby number two, I have just started thinking about planning my homebirth.
I have already told my midwife that I want my homebirth, she has been very supportive, and will be visiting me later this month to officially write my plan.
In the meantime I want to make sure that I do everything I can to make labour a smooth process and reduce risk of hospital transfers.
I plan to start using natural and herbal remedies to condition my body to be in the best condition it can possibly be.

Planning allotment beds

Last May we got our allocated our allotment plot. It was my first proper garden and I really wanted to make our allotment a great place for family time and growing food.
As it was late in the season and the plot was over grown, our key mission last year was to clear the plot, and pray we could get something in on time. We did well with Bush plants like marrows and pumpkins. In fact we just used the last pumpkin this week.
But there was no real plan involved. So this year I've been using the last legs of winter to plan the perfect allotment bed set up.
