Preparing Your Labor Bag

Consider bringing the following for labor and delivery:

 

Snacks:

  1. cut up fruit
  2. water
  3. pretzels/crackers
  4. anything light and easy to eat that will provide energy

Personal Items:

  1. robe
  2. comfy slippers
  3. any comforting items from home
  4. photos
  5. music
  6. lip balm – lips get dry with all that breathing – apply often!
  7. 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.
