Months before the delivery, hope you have selected an ideal hospital that is not too far to travel and has adequate amenities required for baby including a helpful staff. The doctor is of course the one you have been visiting for periodical checkups.

Sometimes a doctor has to suddenly decide on C-section against vaginal birth, be ready for the twist and plan accordingly.

 

Plan packing bags in two parts –things required before and post delivery. Here is a list of items that you should pack-

 

    Comfortable clothes!

    Sleep wear

    Comfortable slippers

    Shawl

    Scarf

    Nursing bras and breast pads.

    Toiletries such as shampoo, soap, toothpaste, tooth brush, moisturizer and lip balm.

    Napkins and Towels

    Wet wipes

    Hair clips/band!

    Medical File of reports

If possible have and experienced friend/family member to be with you in hospital. Hospitals are always short on manpower and cannot provide you minute necessary tips at this point.

 

If this is your second child see that the sibling of newborn is given due attention.  They might feel neglected and feel jealous about everybody’s excitement for the new  baby. Best way would be to let the sibling of new born participate and join the preparations in his/her tiny way.
