A few weeks before your due date, pack a small bag for the hospital with items you might need in labor and after birth. This includes:

  • Your identity document.
  • Any documents related to prenatal examinations.
  • Toiletries such as toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, lipstick, deodorant, etc.
  • Any book, magazine, or music player to pass the time and relax.
  • Slippers and socks.
  • 2-3 soft bras and 5-6 pairs of underpants.
  • 2-3 comfortable nightgowns or shirts that reach to around your knees
  • Maxi pads (sanitary napkins).
  • Bottle of water.
  • Clothes to return home.

For your new baby, you should also bring:

  • Diapers and wipes.
  • A vest/t-shirt and all-in-one cotton suit (if the hands and feet don’t close also bring socks and gloves). If it is winter you will also need a heavy all-in-one suit.
  • Cotton hat.
  • Blanket
