All That Goes In The Pregnancy Labor Bag

Mar 2, 2008
Learn all about packing for your pregnancy labor bag here. When you go through various pregnancy related books and magazines, you see how much emphasis they lay on packing your bag in advance.

Why Is Packing A Pregnancy Labor Bag Important?

Your hospital will not supply you with many things. In case your stay is longer than the usual 1-2 days after delivery, you will need many of your own necessities.

Many women fear that lack of preparation and to not have their dear things with them when they are going through pregnancy labor can make all plans go kaput. They are right. So pack your bag well before the full term. You can ask the hospital staff what they provide before you make your own list. You will need to make 2 lists- one for yourself and one for that little bundle of joy that is about to enter into your life.

Making It Easy For You

Here is a general but exhaustive checklist for you to go through. You can add to it according to your requirements-

1. Toiletries, toothbrush, paste, shampoo, etc.

2. Makeup: You might feel you would not need it but you might when people drop in to meet you and your baby.

3. Your pregnancy period reference books or pamphlets.

4. Your home pillow also goes in your bag if you are the type who cannot sleep comfortably without your pillow. You can use a printed or colored case to distinguish it from the hospital ones.

5. Your i-pod or CD-player along with music that you like.

6. Your digicam or camcorder with accessories and batteries to capture many magical moments.

7. Pad and pen to note things down or to make lists of things to do when you reach home.
8. Lists of people to call after the birth.

9. Lip balm- must for the dry air conditioned air of the hospital.

10. Your own clothes- Pack the clothes that you have used during pregnancy ones as it will be months before you will get back to your pre-pregnancy shape.

11. Baby stuff- Ask your doctor to give you a comprehensive list.

12. Warm clothes for yourself for post pregnancy chills

13. Snacks- Pack nutritious stuff like granola bars, juices etc.

Special clothes for yourself and baby for homecoming are a must in your labor bag. Extra large bag of super absorbent sanitary pads for post delivery bleeding.

Keep your packed pregnancy labor bag right next to your door as once the baby decides on arriving, there will be no time to search for it.
