As you prepare for your delivery, it’s a good idea to pack your bags ahead of time, so you’re ready to go when the time comes. Be sure to also bring a form of identification for when you check-in.

Labor & Delivery Preparation

We recommend including the following items in your bag:

  • Clothes: We will provide you with a johnny gown and slipper socks during your time at the hospital, but you can also wear you own clothes. Pack comfortable clothes you’d like to have during your stay (ex. robe, pajamas, lounge wear)
  • Footwear: Slippers or flip flops
  • Toiletries
  • Snacks for your partner/support person
  • Labor items: Any additional items you’d like to have during labor, including music, lotions, massage tools, etc.

Postpartum Preparation

It’s a good idea to pack a separate bag for your time in the postpartum area that includes:

  • 1-2 baby outfits
  • A baby blanket
  • A pacifier if you choose to use one
  • Maternity clothes
  • Menstrual pads (we only provide very large pads)

If you find you are in need of additional items after arrival, you can visit our hospital gift shops for supplies, gifts, snacks and flowers.
