I have read all the lists, watched all the vlogs and received all the advice on what to pack for the hospital. After taking in that information, going through the book from our birthing class and honestly taking a look at myself and my normal needs, I created these hospital bag checklists. While I am sure I am overpacking, we live 30 minutes from the hospital, and even though that distance isn’t crazy, I don’t want anyone to have to go back to our house when I can just be over-prepared from the start.
I created a list for each of us (myself, Dave and Olivia) and added or removed as needed. I plan to update this after we are home from the hospital to share what I actually ended up needing.
