The Essential Hospital Bag Checklist

Wondering what you need to pack in your hospital bag? Here are the essentials you will need so there's no last-minute rush to fill a suitcase between contractions.

Depending on what type of person you are; super-organized or, a leave-it-till-the-last-minute type. Whichever one, it is a good idea to pack your hospital bag by around 37-38 weeks. As your fantastic friends at Baby Made, we have put together the must-haves to take to hospital so you can just print it or save to your phone and tick off the checklist be ready to go!

We recommend packing 3 separate bags: 1 small bag with a change of clothes for the labour; a medium bag with the baby’s essentials; and a larger bag for everything else you will need.

You’ve got this!
