What to Bring to the Hospital for Delivery

What to bring to the hospital for delivery

You should have a small bag, containing the personal articles you wish to bring to the hospital packed and ready to go. These may include:

For You

  • Pajama tops or short nighties (remember to buy appropriate nursing gowns if you will be breastfeeding).
  • Robe and slippers (washable).
  • Toiletries.
    • Toothpaste/toothbrush.
    • Shampoo/conditioner.
    • Soap.
    • Deodorant.
    • Shower cap.
  • Two bras (remember nursing bras, if you’re nursing—they are available at one of our breastfeeding supply stores).
  • Clothing to go home in (remember to bring some of your early maternity clothes; you probably won’t fit in your skinny jeans just after giving birth).
