Our Maternity Program Know What to Pack

Think ahead about the essential items you’ll need to pack for yourself and your baby. Plan to pack a bag by the time you are about 36 weeks pregnant in the event that you may need to go to the Hospital unexpectedly.

For You:

  • Roomy gowns or nursing tops (a front opening is helpful for breast-feeding)
  • Robe
  • Socks and slippers
  • Roomy clothes to wear home
  • Toiletries
  • A support or nursing bra
  • Extra underwear
  • Eyeglasses or contacts
  • Camera (cameras may be used in the Delivery Suite, but video cameras are prohibited)
  • Phone and phone charger
  • Things to help you relax or pass the time, such as books and magazines
  • Insurance card, photo ID, and any hospital paperwork you need

For Your Baby:

  • Seasonally appropriate going home outfit and hat
  • Receiving blanket
  • Car seat

Please do not bring valuables or medications to the Hospital.
