what to pack in a hospital bag

What to Pack in a Hospital Bag - 1Just like our diaper bag, figuring out what to pack in a hospital bag as newbie parents seemed like an overwhelming responsibility at first. After consulting many online lists, as well as my sister (don’t forget the snacks!), I think that we now have a pretty good idea as to what we will need. Here is what we will be taking to the hospital:

What to Pack in a Hospital Bag - 2We are bringing a cooler and ice cream pail in order to transport my placenta. It has to be kept over ice until it can be encapsulated. As for our baby, we were given the same outfit that my husband went home in from the hospital just over 30 years ago. We plan to bring him/her home in it. Here’s hoping that it will fit!

What were some of the essentials that you needed at the hospital whilst in labour?
