First of all, stay calm! Put your calming breathing tricks you picked up in Lamaze class into play. Next dial 9-1-1. While help is on the way, you can focus on how to keep you and your baby safe when your baby-to-be is making a sudden entrance into the world.

Find a comfortable, safe place to labor laying down or sitting propped up while your partner washes his hands. In cases where time permits, you can use a clean shower curtain to protect the floor from fluids and blood. Next, have your partner gather pots of warm water and several clean towels to wrap and lay your newborn upon and to wipe up fluids.
