Consider bringing the following for labor and delivery:
- cut up fruit
- anything light and easy to eat that will provide energy
- comfy slippers
- any comforting items from home
- lip balm – lips get dry with all that breathing – apply often!
- pillow – it’s nice to have one of your own for your head. Use the hospital pillows to pad your knees while kneeling, to place between knees, etc.
