Most Important Things to Pack for Your Trip to the Hospital

Congratulations! Baby is arriving soon and it is time to pack your hospital bag. It can be stressful trying to decide on what to bring and what to leave behind. You might even be worried you will leave something behind. You have enough on your plate, the last thing you need to be stressing about is your hospital bag. Here are some packing tips and a bag check list to help minimize your stress during the final days before baby.

Pack your bag in advance

Try to have your bag packed by 8 months or 32 weeks. That way you’ll be ready to go when you go into labor. 

Don’t forget! Partners should also pack a bag of their own to ensure their time at the hospital is comfortable as well.

Clothing Labor








• Baby book for footprints
• Although not in your “hospital bag,” don’t forget to have your car seat installed in your car
• If it’s cold, make sure you have extra warm clothing and blankets for baby
