You need a lamp for the mw to see everything. Preferably angle-poise. Also plastic sheeting to cover everything. I recomend (sp) B&Q value decorating sheets. THey are massive and cheap. I covered mine with old duvet covers I didn't want any more so I wasn't lying on plastic. You also need planty of old towels and my mw asked for a thermometer too, to make sure the room was warm enough when the baby was born.
