Chapter 4: Navigating with a new baby > Preparing the hospital bag

Preparing the hospital bag

With each pregnancy I’ve streamlined the task of packing my hospital bag. For the last two pregnancies I created a list of items I’d need to pack into my hospital bag at the last minute. There were a number of things I wanted to pack that I was still using regularly and needed to have available. To make sure they weren’t forgotten in the last-minute packing, I found it helpful to have a descriptive list of these items so they could be packed easily once labour started. While I managed my labour, my husband was able to go around ticking off the items on the list while putting them in my hospital bag.

My checklist for our fifth baby is shown in table 4.2 (overleaf). A template for this checklist can be found at www.planningwithkids.com/resources.
