The time to go to the hospital is finally here! Instead of recreating the moment of panic you see in movies, prepare beforehand for the big moment. One thing to do ahead of time is pack a hospital bag with everything you need. Here are a few necessities, and a couple extra things, you may need for your hospital sta:
It’s important to be comfortable during your stay in the hospital, especially after going through labor. Treat yourself by buying a great pair of pajamas specifically for the occasion!
Pack a bag of separate toiletries just for the hospital. Include a new brush, shampoo, conditioner, makeup, etc.
3. A Good Camera
Even though a lot of people use phones for photos, it may be worth purchasing a good camera for special occasions such as this.
Hospitals can be cold. To make sure you are comfortable in your room, pack a nice pair of slippers or really warm socks.
Even though you won’t have an appetite during labor, your partner most likely will, especially if it’s a long labor. Pack some easy snacks, such as granola bars.
