Whats in my Hospital Bag?

Since my plan is to give birth at a birth centre instead of a hospital some of the items in my hospital bag aren’t allowing in most hospital. ** Indicates the items that you would need to check on before using in traditional birth settings.

  • 2 pairs of warm, nonskid socks that can get ruined
  • A warm robe or nighty you don’t mind sacrificing to the cause ( I have a labour and delivery robe from Pink Blush)
  • Maternity bras or  bra with no underwire and nursing pads
  • Lip balm
  • Toiletries and personal items (hairbrush, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, face wash, makeup, shampoo, conditioner , Hair ties and lotion)
  • Inspirational or calming music **
  • Camera and camera charger
  • Cellphone and Cellphone charger
  • Comfortable going home clothes
  • Birth plan (3 copies)
  • Maternity underwear (or comfortable underwear) and heavy overnight pads
  • Diffuser and essential oils **
  • Snacks ** ( high protein/ high fibre and low in sugar) I made a couple different healthy muffins recipes and have them stored in the freezer
  • Coconut water**
  • Ener-c Packs **
  • Cooler and Ice packs for bring home my Placenta (I plan to do encapsulation)

Depending on if you have a midwife or an OBGYN the hospital bag list my differ, however, most of the top point are pretty standard for either health practitioner and either birth place.
