When you arrive at the hospital, you’ll need your current insurance card/information and photo identification (driver’s license, passport, etc.).
For your hospital stay, you’ll only need the basics: nightgowns, a robe, slippers, a supportive bra, extra underwear and sanitary pads, toiletries and infant clothing. Diapers, wipes and sanitary supplies for you and the baby will be provided throughout your stay. If you're planning to breastfeed, pack some breast pads and your breast pump in case you have questions about its use or need to use it in the hospital. You may also want to bring additional items like something to focus on during labor, snacks, a camera, phone charger, etc.
An infant car seat should already be installed in the family car for the baby's first trip home.
Please do not bring jewelry or valuables to the hospital.
