Sometime packing a hospital birth bag can be overwhelming but it doesn’t’ need to be. Here is a short list of some items to consider and please don’t feel like you need to pack everything on this list. Take what you like a leave the rest. I recommend packing 2-3 small bags (a birth bag, a postpartum bag and a bag for baby). Each should be easy to carry (no bigger that a carry-on). Also, if you are taking electronics, consider taping a business card to it or just putting contact info on it somewhere. The nurses already have plenty so they would really like to return yours.
