Once you’re at the pointy end of your pregnancy, there’s nothing more comforting than getting organised.
And packing your hospital bag for birth is one of the most satisfying things to tick off your long pre-baby list.
It signals that you’re about to have a bubba. And it’s incredibly reassuring to know that you’re ready for the big day.
To make this process as easy as possible, we’ve compiled a checklist that not only tells you what to pack in your hospital bag for birth, it also covers all the essentials for your support crew and the exciting trip home.
Keep in mind that the quantities for each item on your checklist depends on the length of your hospital stay. If you’re planning to give birth in a public hospital then your stay is likely shorter than within the private hospital system.
With all that in mind, we recommend over-packing than being under-prepared.
