Avoid Last Minute Surprises: Have Your Hospital Labour Bag Ready
In our third trimester, it is time to start planning for the big day when bub will finally be resting in our arms and the excitement will be over. Check with the hospital first where you are planning to birth. Hospitals may provide some items whilst others may not. Some have different policies about what may and may not accompany mums in their hospital labour bag for Mothers and their babies. It is safest to put the basics in your maternity bag for now, with a view for Dad to ‘bring in’ the rest in later as needed.
TIPS for the Bare Necessities in any Hospital Labour Bag for Mums
Clothing, Warmth and Comfort! Also to be organised and to have items easily accessible as you may only have one hand as you will be nursing Bub.
Some Little Luxuries That You May Need While Waiting for Nature’s Special Arrival
• A comfy loose dress / nighty and backless slip-on slippers
• Snacks, Lip Balm and Water Bottle for Sipping during labour
• Your MP3 or Music Box with good mood music you love
• If you are up to it, a good read or a tablet with a dongle
What You Need in the Delivery Hospital Room
Many Hospitals also have their own supplies for Bubs arrival. It is the safest to ask your Hospital, Mid-wife or Obstetrician for advice. Here are some things they may recommend for your baby hospital bag:
• A Hot/Cold Pack plus a pair of socks
• A birth ball, some hospitals provide these
• Babies first outfit lifted out
• Your favourite massage oil or lotion for your Support Partner to give you a soothing massage
What to Pack in Your Hospital Labour Bag for Later
Remember to add suitable pyjamas if breast-feeding your newborn, and some snacks and drinks for you. Personal toiletries complete the list, but wait. We forgot the hospital labour bag for bub.
