WHAT SHOULD I PACK FOR THE HOSPITAL?


Suggested Items to Bring to the Hospital

  • Labor Support Items
  • Soothing Music
  • Hand Fan
  • Pillows - The hospital has pillows, but some patients prefer to bring their own.
  • Lip Balm
  • Lotion/Massage Oil
  • Clothing
  • Mother - slippers/socks, bathrobe, going home outfit, bra, underclothing
  • Baby - going home outfit and/or undershirt, socks, blanket
  • Toiletries
  • Camera, Camcorder (battery operated) - Photography and videotaping is permitted during the birth, but the care and safety of our mothers and babies come first. All equipment must be battery-operated, because electrical cords can be a safety hazard in the Labor & Delivery area.
  • Videos/Books
  • Treats such as hard candy, lollipops, etc.
  • Baby Car Seat - Place your newborn’s car seat into the car so you are ready to bring the baby home.
