Easy Hospital Bag Checklist!

Having your hospital bag ready 2-3 weeks before your due date has been such a stress relief for both of us with each of our 5 births. Plan what to pack for the hospital when having a baby using our hospital bag checklist to save you time and reduce stress when it is your baby's time to come.

Go to the hospital maternity open house session and find out what they provide for you and your baby, and what they recommend you bring along.

Even 'Dad to be' can pack your pregnancy bag if needed.

Familiarize yourself with how you will get to the hospital, the easiest route to take, how long it takes and find alternative routes in case of traffic. Check out the entrances and how to get to the maternity ward especially at night after 'regular' hours.

With your pregnancy bag prepared ahead of time, you are hospital ready.

Congratulations to you on the upcoming addition to your family.
