The Bag

First things first, let's talk about the bag itself. You want to choose a bag that's big enough to hold everything you need, but also easy to carry.

Comfortable Clothing

You'll want to pack comfortable clothing for your hospital stay. This includes loose-fitting pajamas or nightgowns, a robe, and slippers or socks..


This includes a toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, deodorant, and any other personal items you may need



Nursing Supplies

If you plan to breastfeed, you'll want to pack nursing supplies. This includes nursing bras, breast pads, nipple cream, and a breast pump if you plan to use one.


Phone charger

Bringing a phone charger will guarantee that you can remain associated with loved ones, and take photos of your new child.


Labor can be a long process, so you'll want to pack some entertainment to pass the time.



Baby Essentials

You'll also need to pack essentials for your baby. This includes diapers, wipes, a hat, socks, and a few changes of clothes. 


Snacks and Water

It's vital to remain hydrated and nourished during labor and delivery, so carry a few snacks and beverages with you to the hospital.


Important Documents

Don't forget to pack any important documents you may need, such as your ID, insurance card, and birth plan.
