Maternity hospital bag checklist

Any mom on their third trimester should have a ready “pack-your-bag-and-go” set aside in a corner of your room. You cannot wait for the last minute to do it, as definitely as emotions ran high, so it is difficult to remember what you need to pack in your bag. You want to be in a position where all your essentials are neatly loaded ready to be grabbed at anytime.

Ultimate Pack-Your-Bag-And-Go

A bag should be large enough to hold al your essentials plus dad’s and the baby. A small suitcase or a large duffel bag will be a good one to have. In that bag should have a separate bag for mom, dad and the baby, and another separate bag for your tech toys (chargers, cameras, tablets).
