Here is a list of things you may want to bring when you go to hospital in labour. You probably should prepare this about 2 – 3 weeks before your due date as you never know when the baby is coming!
Sanitary pads (you may require thicker pads compared to the normal ones)
Change of day clothes
Lotion or massage oil
Contact lens container / glasses
Antenatal book or Blood investigation / report
Insurance information / Guarantee Letter
Phone and the relevant phone number of relatives / friends
Do not bring any valuables / too much cash with you.
Camera, extra batteries / charger
Books and magazines
For your new baby!
Diapers and wipes
Receiving / thicker blanket
Baby socks and mittens
Do not forget your hubby / partner!
Change of clothes
Things to read
Cell phone / charger
It probably would be a good idea to pack for two bags – One to put things for you and your partner for labour and the other bag is to put things for your baby and extra things you will need if you need to stay longer in the hospital.
