What to Take to the Hospital

As you enter the last part of your pregnancy, it is time to start thinking about your trip to the hospital.  Delivery is rarely easy but making sure that you have a few extra comforts from home can go a long way.  So think ahead and pack your hospital bag soon.   Here are a few items you may want to pack:

  • Anything for the actual birth to soothe you (music, favorite book, massage tools, etc.)
  • Nightgown or pajamas.  Including nursing style if you plan to nurse.
  • Underwear, socks, and nursing bras
  • Bathrobe and slippers
  • Special snacks or beverages
  • Cosmetics and hair care items
  • Clothes to wear home…make sure they are loose-fitting not your size 8 jeans!
  • Telephone numbers of family and friends
  • Camera and any video equipment you wish to use
  • Clothes for baby
  • Receiving blankets
  • If bottle feeding, a bottle with a newborn nipple
  • Newborn diapers
  • Car seat
