Take it from Jennifer Ashley at Pretty Little Details ... Keep the Labour Gown in your Hospital Bag.
A lot of the other stuff, you can omit from the checklist. But a gown to birth in AND to wear afterwards for nursing at the hospital...those are essential!
Check out prettylittledetails.com for pointers on why or why not to bring your whole list to the hospital for labour and delivery. We can't forget about those couple of days postpartum, too. Think about being in the hospital, having visitors, and having a newborn in an unfamiliar setting.
