Preparing For Your Hospital Stay

It's a good idea to have everything ready to go when you're 8 months pregnant, since you could go into labor at any time in the weeks before your due date. We recommend using a small, rolling suitcase.

Here’s a list of nearly everything you will need:


  • A 照片的身份证 (driver's license or other ID), your 保险卡 and any other necessary paperwork.
  • 你的生育计划
  • 如果你戴眼镜,把它们带来.  If you wear contact lenses, bring your glasses and a spare set of contacts and contact solution
  • A 浴袍, a 睡衣 或两个, 拖鞋, 袜子. We provide gowns and 袜子 for you to use during labor and afterward, but some women prefer to wear their own. Choose a loose, comfortable gown that you don't mind getting dirty. It should be either sleeveless or have short, loose sleeves so your blood pressure can be checked easily. Slippers and a robe may come in handy if you want to walk the halls during labor.
  • Bring something to help you to relax. Here are some possibilities: Your own pillow (use a patterned or colorful pillowcase so it doesn't get mixed up with the hospital pillows), music and something to play it on, a picture of someone or something you love, anything else you find reassuring. 如果你要被诱导, think about bringing something to read or watch because it may be a while before labor is underway.
  • 化妆品 打包一些个人物品, such as a toothbrush and toothpaste, 润唇膏, 除臭, 刷子和梳子, 化妆, 还有发带或发夹. We provide soap, shampoo, lotion and sanitary napkins, but some patients may prefer to use their own.  Remember to pack for your partner if your partner plans to remain with you overnight.
  • 手机及充电器
  • 舒适的鞋子
  • 可以阅读或观看的东西


  • 一个全新的 睡衣, if you prefer to wear your own
  • 零食! After many hours of labor, you're likely to be pretty hungry. 我们提供小吃, 比如葡萄, 奶酪, 饼干, graham 饼干 and peanut butter, but if you think of something else you may enjoy, 你可以把它带来. Remember to bring snacks for your partner, as well.
  • 舒适的 护理文胸 or 普通文胸. Whether or not you choose to breastfeed, your breasts are likely to be tender and swollen when your milk comes in, which can happen anytime during the first several days after delivery. A good bra can provide some comfort, breast pads can be added to help absorb leaks.
  • 几对 孕妇内裤. We provide disposable underwear. Some women love them, but others don't. You may bring along roomy, cotton underwear if you prefer. The hospital will provide sanitary pads, because you'll bleed after delivery. If you prefer, you may bring your own. Make sure you have a supply of heavy-duty pads waiting at home.
  • You may want to bring photos or gifts for your other children. It may help them to accept their new sibling.
  • A notepad or journal and pen or pencil. Track your baby's feeding sessions, write down questions you have for the nurse, note what the pediatrician tells you and jot down memories of your baby's first day.  You may also want to bring your baby book so you can record the details of his or her birth.
  • A 才装. Bring something roomy and easy to get into. You will still look 5 to 6 months pregnant when you leave the hospital.


  • An 安装汽车座椅. Have a rear-facing car seat properly installed ahead of time and know how to buckle your baby in correctly. Contact your local police department or sheriff’s office for assistance in properly installing the car seat or for a car seat inspection. 
  • A 才装. Be sure to dress your baby with something with legs so you can properly secure the car seat strap. You may need booties and a cap, depending on the weather.
  • A 接收的毯子. We provide blankets for swaddling your baby while you're with us, but you may want to bring your own to tuck around your baby in the car seat for the ride home.
  • We provide diapers and wipes during your baby’s stay.
