Packing your Hospital Bag

Third Trimester

Making sure that you have all the essentials ready to go is an important step in preparing for the birth of your baby.

What to bring for you:

  • Cell phone and charger
  • A photo I.D. and all necessary paperwork
  • Your birth plan
  • A bathrobe, slippers, socks and a few changes of clothes
  • Items to help you relax and be comfortable (a favorite pillow, noise machine, music, something to read or anything else you find reassuring).
  • Any medications you need daily (please make sure your doctor knows what medications you are taking to make sure there will be no adverse interactions with any medication you are given during your hospital stay).
  • Camera or smartphone with charger and batteries to document your birth
  • Toiletries
  • Snacks
  • Money
  • An outfit and comfortable shoes to go home in
  • Anything else you might want during your stay

What to bring for your baby:

  • A properly installed car seat that meets safety standards (You will not be able to leave the hospital without one and can have it checked at many local police or fire stations).
  • A going home outfit that is weather appropriate
  • A receiving blanket
  • Your hospital will likely provide diapers that will fit your baby
