The Ultimate Hospital Bag Checklist For Labor & Delivery

Your due date is quickly approaching, and you would like to keep your hospital bag ready to go?

If you are a first-time mom, I have an ultimate hospital bag checklist just for you so you can go through every single item on the list and decide what you might need for a better labor and delivery.

One piece of advice that I would like to give new moms is that do not wait till the last week of your due date to pack your bags.

Birth Plan, Id Card, Insurance (or Health card).

Water Bottle:

Lip Balm:

Hair Ties and Head Bands:

You will probably be asked to walk or climb stairs for active labor to kick start. Bring comfortable slippers to wear in the hospital.
