Postpartum bag hospital: What to Pack in Your Hospital Bag

Posted on

The ULTIMATE Hospital Bag Checklist

There are so many different lists out there that tell you what you need to pack in your hospital bag for your labor and birth. As a doula, I have helped many clients prepare for their hospital stay, and I have created the ultimate hospital bag checklist that I promise will have everything you need!

NOTE: You’ll want to be sure that you have your bags packed and in your car no later than 37 weeks.

I say to leave it in your car at this time or sooner because you want to be prepared just in case your doctor keeps you after a prenatal visit or sends you to the hospital because of an emergency. It’s always better to be safe than sorry!


Below I have different lists for not only the mom but for dad/partner and baby! Here is our hospital bag checklist—all the things you’ll need when you’re at the hospital during labor, birth, and immediately postpartum.

Mama’s Hospital Bag Checklist

I actually recommend that moms have TWO bags. One bag is for labor, and another bag is for their recovery/postpartum room.

Labor Bag:


Your birth plan (if you have one) and your insurance information.


If you wear contacts, you should bring your glasses along with you. If you end up needing a c-section, some doctors/anesthesiologists ask you to take your contacts out before surgery.

What you’re going to wear during labor 

It will probably get a bit messy, so don’t bring anything too nice to wear in the hospital. If you aren’t sure of your options, here’s more information about what to wear at a hospital birth.

Massage oil or lotion –

If you would like to be massaged during your labor, I recommend bringing either of these so that your partner or doula can massage you. (If you hired a doula, she will probably bring this with her in her doula bag.)

Birth ball or peanut ball  

I think this is a must in our hospital bag checklist. These can really help you during labor. A peanut ball is particularly great for women preparing to have an epidural. I highly recommend it. Just remember to bring a pump so your birth partner can inflate it for you if you didn’t come with it already inflated. (Read more about the benefits of using a peanut ball HERE)

NOTE: Some hospitals have birth balls and peanut balls for you to use. Ask during your hospital tour if they are available at your hospital.

Lip balm

Your lips can dry out quickly with all of the deep breathing you will do in labor. Having some chapstick or lip balm will help.

Snacks and drinks

First, make sure that your doctor/hospital will allow this. Most of the time, they will only allow you to have ice chips when you are at the hospital in labor, but they may have sugar-free popsicles there for you.

Things to help you relax and pass the time:

If you are going to have an epidural:

Bring books, magazines, a card game, or your tablet or computer. They also have TVs in each L&D room so you can watch a show or a movie to help pass the time. I also recommend trying to take a nap. It’s great to catch up on as much rest as possible before the baby arrives.

If you want a natural birth:

Bring music, a focal point (for example, it could be your baby’s ultrasound picture), massage lotions, a heating pad, rice socks to heat up so that you can put on your lower back, essential oils, etc.

Headbands and/or ponytail holders

If you have long hair, you may want it tied up since it can get in the way during labor. I recommend getting the ones that don’t leave a kink in your hair. That way, if you want to take pictures with your hair down after birth, you won’t have a crease in your hair!


Take your Bluetooth speaker, a CD player, and some CDs, or use your phone. Some hospitals provide their own CD players and iPod docks, so I would ask what they will have available in your room.

Camera, charged battery, charger, and a big memory card –

You never want to forget the day you first welcomed your baby into the world. Many parents take pictures with their phones, but if you have a nicer camera that you want to bring to capture this special time, bring it!

Cell phone and charger with a long cord

You don’t know where the outlet is going to be so have an extra long charging cord so you can keep your phone close if it needs to charge.

*Nice to Have But Not Necessities:

Backless slip-on slippers –

Your feet can get cold during labor, so it’s great to have some slippers that you can easily slip on and off. The hospital typically has non-skid socks (super sexy! 😉 ) that you can use if you prefer those instead.


The hospital might not have enough pillows to make you comfortable. Usually, each room has about two. And honestly, hospital pillows are very thin and really uncomfortable. If you do bring your own pillows (I would), make sure that your pillowcase is not white. Otherwise, they could toss your pillowcase and pillow along with the rest of theirs, and your pillow will go missing. I would recommend adding it to your hospital bag checklist.

Baby Book

After your baby’s born, the nurse will get your baby’s footprints, so if you bring your baby book, she can also get those sweet footprints and/or handprints in your baby book too!

Postpartum/Recovery Room Bag:


Going-home outfit 

You’ll need loose, comfortable clothes to wear while you’re in the hospital and for the journey home. You will still look about six months pregnant after the birth of your baby since your uterus still needs time to heal and get back to its pre-pregnancy size. So I recommend still bringing some soft maternity clothes for your trip back home.

Nursing bras and/or nursing nightgowns –

If you had healthy labor and birth and your baby is doing well, you will probably only stay at the hospital for two or three days. I suggest bringing two or three nursing gowns or nursing bras to make breastfeeding easier and to stay comfortable during your stay. If you decide to wear your nursing bras, bring front-opening shirts so it’s easier for you to breastfeed.

Nursing pads

Bring a couple of packs (disposable or washable). Whether or not you plan to nurse, you’ll appreciate the support and leak protection.

Nipple Cream

You want to protect your nipples from chapping and cracking.

Your toiletries 

Having smaller bottles or buying travel versions helps save space in your recovery bathroom. Bring the usual toiletries you need: hairbrush, toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, body soap, razor, deodorant, face wash, makeup (if you’d like), makeup remover, lotion, hair ties, contact lens case, and solution, etc.

Postpartum underwear or disposable underwear.

Don’t bring your nice, cute undies with you. You need big, cotton, breathable underwear. Some people even get Depends Silhouettes, so they can easily toss them after using them. The hospital will have disposable mesh undies with a large pad, which some women find handy, and others find gross.


It’s nice to be able to bundle up and feel covered and warm when getting out of bed or having guests in your room.

Hair dryer

Snacks and drinks

Some hospitals have good food, and others don’t. If your hospital doesn’t, and you don’t have someone to bring you food, be sure to bring some beverages and snacks to keep you nourished.

*Nice to Have But Not Necessities:

Nursing pillow

Depending on your preference, you can bring your Boppy pillow, My Breast Friend, or other breastfeeding pillows.

Breast pump

If you plan to use one, I do recommend bringing yours. Most hospitals have lactation consultants that visit each room to help you with breastfeeding and show you how to use your pump correctly.

Nipple shields

You don’t need to bring these with you. However, if you have some latching issues or if your nipples start to hurt or have inverted or flat nipples, the lactation consultant may recommend a nipple shield. You may be able to purchase them at the hospital as well.

Handouts –

If you received any booklets or handouts about how to get breastfeeding started, you can bring them with you as a reminder. The lactation consultants aren’t always there to see you so these can help.

Bath towel

The hospital does have towels, but they are small and pretty thin. If you prefer to have your own thicker towels, you can bring your own.

Heavy flow pads

The hospital also has large pads for you to use after birth (since you will be bleeding for several days, sometimes weeks, after giving birth). If you are picky about what type you want to wear, bring the brand you prefer with you.

Husband/Partner’s Bag:


Extra changes of clothes

I have had some Dad’s/partner’s change their clothes even when their partner is still in labor. For example, they may think the room is too cold, so they put on a jacket or a long-sleeved shirt, or they sweat too much because they’re nervous or working hard too, so they need new shirts. So having some extra pairs of clean clothes is good to have on hand.

Comfortable shoes

They may be walking up and down the halls with you or running to get you ice chips or going to find and talk to family. So having comfy shoes are important.


For the same reason as you, they need something comfortable to sleep on. The pull-out couches aren’t the most comfortable, so it’s at least nice for them to have a good pillow.

Cell phone and charger

Your partner should have been keeping track of your contractions on their phone with a contraction timer app, so be sure they have that downloaded as well. There are plenty of free ones.

Group text or list of people to call

Have the conversation before you go into labor about all the people your partner needs to notify once you are in labor. Some people do a group text, and others just keep a list of names to get in touch with.

Snacks and drinks

You don’t want a dehydrated, hungry birth partner looking after you. If they bring some snacks and drinks with them, they can stay with you rather than leaving the room to search for food! If they leave the room to find food and eat, they may not come back quickly to help you. This is why I tell my doula clients to bring a cooler with them to carry the drinks and snacks they want.

*Nice to Have But Not Necessities:

Motorized or hand-held fan

You may get overheated in labor, so it’s great if your partner has a fan to help you cool down. It may even have a mister, which can be nice.

Money/spare change –

If you didn’t have time to bring snacks with you, you will want to have some spare change for the vending machines. You both will probably be really hungry after labor, and the hospital cafeteria might not be open once the baby is born. If no one can bring you food (which I would see if someone can pick something up for you), then having some change is helpful to get some snacks from the vending machine.

Pen and paper

If documenting things in a note on your phone is not your preference, bring something to take notes on. This will really help if your nurse, doctor, or lactation consultant gives you any recommendations or advice. Also, you just gave birth and are recovering, so put him in charge of documenting important things.

Gifts for other children

Make sure to have these ready when big brother or big sister comes into the room. A gift “from the baby” is always a good thing.

Push present

This way, they have it with them to give to you after the birth of your baby 😉

Baby’s Hospital Bag Checklist:


Approved car seat

Hospitals won’t let you leave without one, and the base needs to be installed properly in your car.

A going home outfit –

Think about what the weather might be like when your baby is born. Their outfit needs to be seasonally appropriate. Babies are sensitive to cold weather, so if it’s cold outside, bring a hat, snowsuit, or jacket to keep your baby warm. Don’t forget socks or booties. (Remove the snowsuit or jacket before placing your baby in a car seat.)

Warm blankets

The hospital will provide you a baby blanket or two to swaddle your baby with, but if you prefer a particular type of blanket, bring your own.

Announcement items

If you have a name badge or personalized blankets with your baby’s name on them, don’t forget to bring them so you can document and share with the world (or just your family) that your little one has arrived.

*Nice to Have But Not Necessities:


The hospital will give you some Gerber onesies while you are in the hospital. So all you really need is a going-home outfit for your baby. But if you prefer that your baby wear something else, bring two or three options.


If you decide to give your baby a pacifier, bring your own. Otherwise, they will charge you for theirs at the hospital, which is usually a little higher in price.

Burp cloths  

In case you need to clean up any milk, your baby spits up. But you can use the baby blankets that they give you.

I will also say, make sure there is extra room available in your bags. Then you can bring home everything that you get at the hospital. They are going to give you diapers, wipes, and more. Take as much as you can! They are charging you for it anyway. I hope this hospital bag checklist helps!

Hospital Bag Checklist for New Moms

The closer you get to your due date, the more important it is to pack a hospital bag to make yourself more comfortable during and after delivery.

Share this content

Prepare Your Hospital Bag in Advance

The closer you get to your due date, the more exciting it is to think about finally meeting your baby. In all of the excitement, it can be easy to forget to think about what to pack in your hospital bag, but the items in that bag can be crucial in helping your time away from home go as smoothly as possible!  Your hospital bag will help make you more comfortable during labor and after your little one arrives.

You don’t want to over pack and end up hauling around a giant bag that you barely touch, but it can be easy to forget something important. That’s why we asked veteran moms what to pack in a hospital bag for labor and focused on the absolute “must-have” items.   We’ve compiled their responses here in an easy list of hospital bag essentials for moms:

Hospital Bag Checklist

  1. Lip Balm. More moms talked about packing lip balm than nearly any other item, and for a good reason. Hospital air can be incredibly dry, so having your favorite lip balm will keep your lips feeling good throughout labor and in those precious hours after delivery. Consider lip balm an essential in your maternity bag. 

  2. Your Own Toiletries. Pack a small bathroom bag with your toothbrush and toothpaste, a brush and hair ties, deodorant, and travel-sized lotion, shampoo, and conditioner. Some moms also recommend face wipes for a quick pick-me-up and dry shampoo for between showers. 

  3. Slippers. Slippers, no-skid socks, or flip flops are a lifesaver for pacing the hospital hallways during labor, and when your feet are so swollen they won’t fit into anything else. You won’t regret adding a pair to your hospital bag.  

  4. Glasses. Let’s get real, fussing with your contact solution will be one of the last things on your priority list during this whirlwind. It might be easier on your eyes to retire your contacts for your stay, and opt for your glasses during labor and delivery. 

  5. Nursing Bra. A comfortable nursing bra like our nursing sleep bra (no underwires!) is a must for some moms, while others prefer to go braless because of frequent nursing and to ensure lots of skin-to-skin contact in those early hours after birth. Do whatever makes you comfortable. Just make sure that you have packed whatever you need. 

  6. Nursing Pads. Save yourself from having to do laundry the minute you get home and protect your bra from leaks. Safe & Dry™ Disposable Nursing Pads are available in two options and are ideal for use both at the hospital and when settled at home, once you start going out and about with or without the baby!

  7. Phone Charger. You’ll want your phone to keep you distracted during labor, to contact friends and loved ones when the baby arrives, and for tons of newborn pictures. So, a charger is absolutely essential. Some moms even recommend bringing a longer charging cord that will reach from the wall to your hospital bed.  A phone charger is one of those items that’s easy to forget if you don’t have it already added to your list of items to include in your hospital bag.

  8. Snacks. Having a baby makes you hungry, and we haven’t heard anyone raving about amazing hospital food lately. Do yourself a favor and pack some snacks. We like anything that’s easy to toss in your bag with zero prep-work, like granola bars, crackers, or trail mix.

  9. Bathrobe and Comfy Clothes. Next to that post-delivery shower, the thing that will make you feel most like yourself after giving birth are comfy clothes to recover in. Pack loose lounge pants, a nursing tank, and a cozy zip-up hoodie or bathrobe. Packing comfortable maternity and nursing apparel can provide added support and relief to sensitive areas during and after pregnancy.

  10. Your Own Pillow. Hospitals aren’t known for their comfy pillows and you’ll want to comfortably enjoy every bit of sleep that you’re able to get after your baby arrives! That’s why many moms recommend bringing your own favorite pillow (or two) from home to help keep you as comfortable as possible during labor and to support you when you start breastfeeding — like our maternity and nursing pillow. If you bring your own pillow, remember to use a colored or patterned pillowcase so they don’t get mixed up with the hospital pillows.

  11. Lanolin. While you and your baby are learning to breastfeed in the hospital, your nipples may get sore. Our Purelan lanolin can help soothe and protect them and is completely safe for you and your baby.

  12. Pads, Underwear, and Diapers. The hospital will give you pads and mesh underwear while you recover from giving birth. However, some moms swear by bringing their own protection to be more comfortable. Adult diapers are a popular choice – seriously! – but other moms bring along a well-fitting pair of high-waisted underwear (you probably call them granny panties) and their favorite brand of overnight absorbency pads.

  13. Going Home Outfits. Pack a going-home outfit for yourself and your baby. You’ll probably still be most comfortable in your maternity clothes or cozy loungewear, while your baby will need a onesie, socks, a blanket, and any cold-weather gear if it’s chilly outside.

  14. Car Seat. Don’t forget to make sure your car seat is ready to go and that you and your partner know how to use it before going to the hospital. This item obviously won’t be fitting in your maternity bag, but we thought it was important enough to include anyway. 

  15. The «Nice-to-Have» Items. While many moms get by with just a few of the items listed above, some moms insist on having a few more comforts with them. Most popular were cozy blankets, a tablet for watching TV or movies, and overnight stuff for your partner. Only you can be the judge of whether you think you’ll need additional items like this. Your postpartum hospital bag is all about keeping you comfortable and prepared through labor and delivery.

If you haven’t already, be sure to download the Medela Family app and have that handy, so you can track important baby and breastfeeding stats while having easy access to our knowledge center, smart assistant, and other great breastfeeding-focused content and resources.

Having a hospital bag packed with the items covered above can help ensure that your trip to the hospital goes as smoothly and comfortably as possible. As your due date gets closer, have these items packed in your bag and stowed in the car or by the front door so that you’ll be ready whenever your baby decides to show up!

What To Pack In Your Hospital Bag

A lot will be going through your head when you go into labor. Having a pre-packed labor and delivery bag ready to go is a great way to ensure you don’t forget any of the essentials when you’re on the way to the hospital. 

Dr. Geneva Wahl, OB-GYN at Moreland OB-GYN and mother, shares her necessary, comforting, and helpful delivery items. Watch our vlog below and read our printable hospital bag checklist for labor and delivery. Continue reading our blog for a complete list of all items you could bring to the hospital. 

Video Transcription: Hi, I’m Dr. Geneva Wahl, and I’m a provider at Moreland OB-GYN. I’m here today to talk about what you should bring in your hospital bag for delivery. So first I’m going to start talking about what you should bring for yourself. So first thing would be a toiletry bag. This can include things like lotions, soaps, shampoo—comforts of home. All of this will be available at the hospital, but you’ll likely want to use your own stuff. Next would be clothing. So that can include nursing bras as well as nursing tanks or nursing tops. Then I also would recommend bringing comfy clothes for you to wear during your stay, and clothes to wear home with. So loose-fitting clothes, pajamas. You could also bring a robe and comfy socks. Also really important to bring chapstick—the hospital is very dry. Next we’ll be going over things for baby. So good idea to bring some outfits for baby — one outfit if you plan on taking pictures, something cute for baby to wear. As well as an outfit to go home with. Good to bring a burping cloth and a blanket for baby. So one comfy blanket as well as another blanket or a different type of cloth especially if you have pets at home so you can bring it home and introduce the pets to baby’s scent. Bring snacks or food you like to eat late at night. Also a great way to make sure you are staying well hydrated especially if you are breastfeeding. Another thing you can bring would be your breast pump. That’s a good way for a lactation consultant to help you learn how to use the breast pump so you know how to use it at home. But the hospital does have pumps available, so if you don’t bring it you don’t need to worry. I hope you found this video useful. As always it’s Moreland’s goal to lead women to better health.

Important Documents for Mom and Dad

You’re going to fill out a lot of paperwork for baby, so make sure you have the social security numbers for both you and your partner. Other important documents you’ll need include:

  • Photo IDs
  • Insurance information
  • Hospital forms
  • Birth plan

Your Own Toiletries

The hospital will supply basic toiletries, although bringing your personal shampoo and soap from home can be a source of familiarity and comfort for new moms. Consider putting the following into your bag:

  • Toothpaste 
  • Toothbrush
  • Shampoo 
  • Conditioner 
  • Bodywash
  • Hairbrush
  • Lotion
  • Deodorant
  • Large dark-colored towel

Comfy Clothes for You

You will be in a hospital gown during the actual delivery, but it’s important not to forget a change of clothes for you after your baby is born. Packing appropriate sizes (your body won’t immediately return to normal) of your most comfortable clothes is key. Consider putting the following in your bag: 

  • Bathrobe
  • Slippers
  • Pajamas or loose-fitting clothing
  • Nursing shirts
  • Nursing bra
  • Nipple cream

Blankets for Baby

Having a blanket for baby will provide them comfort and give them something to bond with from your home. This blanket will also be helpful later if you need to introduce a pet to your baby.

NOTE: If you have pets at home, bring a second blanket to use with baby. Then, take that blanket home first to familiarize your pets with baby’s scent.

Clothes for Baby

It’s important to consider the weather when packing clothes for baby. For example, if it’s winter, be sure you have a baby hat, mittens, and a blanket to cover baby because coats cannot be worn in a carseat.

Many moms like to post pictures after delivery to let others know both mom and baby are doing well. Having an outfit picked out can make this moment that much more special and personal.

A Breastfeeding Pillow

This is a personal option from mom to mom, as not all mothers choose to breastfeed. For those that do, packing a boppy or pillow you plan on using for breastfeeding allows you to get hands-on guidance and practice with the lactation consultants while at the hospital.

Breast Pump

For mothers who have never used a pump before, lactation specialists can help you learn how to use it. It’s a great idea to bring your pump along to get a free tutorial! If you are unable to bring your pump and for whatever reason need to start pumping at the hospital, hospital pumps are available.


Many people have a nice camera they want to bring for after delivery photos, although the camera on a smartphone will also work just fine!

Phone / Phone Charger

Your phone battery will drain quickly from taking photos and updating friends and family, so be sure you bring a phone charger with an extra-long cord.

iPad or Laptop / Chargers

Bringing an iPad or laptop is a great way to communicate with outside family and help pass the time while you’re waiting. Don’t forget the chargers!


Bringing a baby book to the hospital can be helpful if you want to take and document footprints and handprints.


A must! It’s dry at the hospital and you’ll be happy to have it.


You may be at the hospital a while; bring your favorite healthy snacks in case you get hungry between meals.

Sibling Gifts

Many parents like to give something to the older sibling to help ease their anxiety over the new baby. Older siblings may also want to give something special to their new baby sister or brother. 

Something to Hold Your Hair Back

Giving birth is hard work!  You’ll be most comfortable with your hair pulled back and out of your face, so don’t forget to pack hair ties and a headband.

Other Items for Your Labor and Delivery Hospital Bag

Every mother is different, and you’ll want to bring what makes you comfortable during this process. Such comforts could include:

  • Music
  • Essential oils diffuser- check with the hospital if they allow this
  • A plug-in with your favorite scent
  • Photographs
  • Movies 
  • Books

Car Seat

While not likely to fit in your hospital bag, it’s a good idea to have a car seat nearby as a reminder before heading to the hospital. After delivery, have someone bring the car seat to the hospital room to ensure it’s correctly adjusted before you leave to take baby home. 

A car seat that has been sitting in a car in the hospital parking lot may be too hot or cold for baby. Bringing the car seat to the hospital room will also ensure it’s a comfortable temperature. 


With your pre-packed labor and delivery bag ready to go, that’s one less thing to worry about as you welcome your new family member! To learn more about contractions and when to go to the hospital, visit this page.

Remember, childbirth is different from woman to woman.  After birth, you should take it easy and listen to your body. For more information about postpartum health, visit our postpartum care page.

Everything You Need for Mom and Baby

Giving birth isn’t exactly a picnic. It isn’t a vacation, either — but delivery of your baby is a time when you’ll likely be staying away from home for at least 24 hours (uncomplicated vaginal delivery) to between 2 to 4 days (cesarean delivery) and sometimes longer.

Your hospital will provide the most basic things you’ll need to care for yourself during and after birth. But where’s the fun in bare bones essentials?

If you want your experience to be a little, well, extra, then you’ll want to thoughtfully pack your bags in advance. Here’s what you can expect your hospital or birthing center to provide and what you may want to bring for yourself, your baby, and your partner.

Just about 5 percent of babies are born on their actual due date.

In reality, your baby may come a couple weeks before or after when you’re expecting. Consider packing your bags at least 3 weeks before your due date. This gives you a bit of time for the unexpected.

If you have any indications you may go into preterm labor or otherwise have your baby on the early side, you may want to pack up your stuff sooner.

You’ve probably read over a bunch of packing lists that seem beyond comprehensive. You don’t need to bring everything and the kitchen sink. In fact, even if you don’t pack a thing, your hospital likely has your basic needs covered. That should be a load off your shoulders — literally!

All facilities are different, though, so if you have any questions, be sure to call to ask before you arrive. You may even want to schedule a hospital tour during your pregnancy to learn more about what you can expect during your stay.

For mom, birth centers generally provide:

  • hospital gowns
  • grip socks
  • birthing ball and other labor tools, like personal massagers
  • large cups for water and ice
  • basic toiletries — soap, shampoo, toothbrush/toothpaste
  • disposable mesh underwear (it’s not the most attractive, but it does the job)
  • thick sanitary pads
  • after-care items, like witch hazel pads and peri bottles
  • standard pillows and blankets

For baby:

  • preemie, newborn, or size 1 diapers
  • basic wipes
  • flannel swaddle blanket(s)
  • hospital-branded onesies
  • standard knit hat
  • shampoo/soap
  • pacifiers
  • formula (Some “baby-friendly” hospitals only offer formula if it’s considered medically necessary. Call your hospital to find out about its policy on formula.)
  • prescription and non-prescription medications, if needed

And before you think of what to pack, you should know that hospitals suggest not packing expensive items, like:

  • wedding rings and other jewelry
  • laptops and tablets
  • loads of cash (because we all have that lying around, right?!)

Basically, avoid bringing anything that you’d miss if you accidentally lost it. We promise, your items will be far from your mind when you hold your little one for the very first time!

While you’ll have the basics provided by the hospital, having familiar items from home can make you feel so much more at ease. (As exciting as mesh undies sound, you’ll be more comfortable in your own — we guarantee it.)

Before you pack, you may want to call your hospital to make sure they don’t have any rules regarding what you wear. Some, for example, may prefer or require you to wear the hospital-issued gown during the actual birth itself.

While this list looks quite long, it should all mostly fit into a single overnight bag.

  • Your ID. This seems obvious, but you’ll need some identification at check-in. You’ll also possibly need your insurance card and any other documents your doctor gave you for admission.
  • Medications list. You’ll probably be asked this information at check-in. And possibly again once you’re settled. If you’re in labor, it may be difficult to remember everything you’re taking — it’s a lot easier to just hand over a piece of paper.
  • Medications. Yes, if you’re on any common prescription medications, the hospital pharmacy can typically provide them — but possibly at a higher cost than what you usually pay. And if you’re on any less common drugs, the hospital might not have any stock on hand. Plan to pack your own to avoid these potential headaches.
  • Credit card or small amount of cash. You may want to use the vending machine or get something from the gift shop or cafeteria during your stay.
  • Birth plan. If you have a specific birth plan that you’ve drafted, bring a copy or two of it with you.
  • Personal hospital gown or pajamas. Yes, you can buy your own hospital gown or change into one after you deliver. On Gownies, pretty gowns cost around $30. If you get a custom one made to your tastes, the price may be significantly higher. You might instead consider wearing a nightgown — one that is dark and easy access for monitors during labor/delivery and breastfeeding after birth.
  • Non-skid socks or slippers. If you don’t like the hospital socks, you can bring your own. It’s key that whatever you choose has grips for safety. Sure, the delivery room floor might not exactly double as a dance floor — but you will be walking around when you can.
  • Birth playlist. This can be music, meditations, or any other audio you want to play during labor and delivery.
  • Book. Or a magazine or other reading material. This is helpful in case you’re waiting a while for the main event.
  • Cell phone and charger. Depending on how fast or slow everything goes, you may want some entertainment or even the option to call a friend while you’re laboring. And you know your social media friends would love updates! You can also store your music or audio on your phone.
  • Toiletries. You can go as simple as some travel shampoos, toothbrush/toothpaste, a brush, deodorant, and a bar of soap. Or you can bring your whole makeup kit and fancy hair products (especially if you’re having professional birth photos taken). Don’t forget stuff like hair bands, lip balm, and lotion, if you tend to have dry skin.
  • Hair dryer. You may or may not be able to bring a hair dryer or other plug-in devices. Call ahead to find out the rules.
  • Glasses and/or contacts. They may be the last thing on your mind, but you’ll also want to bring glasses and contact lens supplies, like a case and saline solution.
  • Underwear. The hospital’s mesh underwear can be a godsend in the first day or so of heavy postpartum bleeding. But slipping into your own may be more comfortable after that. You’ll be wearing pads, so consider sizing up and choosing full coverage styles. And pick dark colors that hide stains well. You can also buy your own disposable underwear if you prefer it.
  • Pads. The hospital provides thick pads. If you want thinner ones, bring them from home. You shouldn’t use tampons after delivery.
  • Nursing bra or supportive bra. Whether or not you’re planning to breastfeed, your milk will probably come in during the hours and days after birth. A supportive bra can help with discomfort. A nursing bra will give you easy access to feed baby.
  • Breastfeeding cover and pads or pillow. Expecting guests? You may feel more comfortable using a nursing cover in those early marathon breastfeeding sessions. Or not — it’s really up to you. You might also want some nursing pads for leaks. You may even want to bring a breastfeeding pillow for support.
  • Breast pump and other nursing supplies. You certainly don’t have to bring your pump if you don’t plan to pump exclusively. And the hospital can provide one if you end up needing it unexpectedly. Still, if you’d like help learning how to use your pump, you can ask a lactation consultant to show you the ropes.
  • Comfortable clothes. Some women stay in the hospital gown their entire time at the hospital. That’s totally fine. If you would rather slip into some loose clothing of your own — that’s cool, too. Think dark-colored yoga pants, nursing or button-down shirts, and other loungey clothing, like a robe, with easy access for breastfeeding.
  • Going home outfit. Don’t forget to think about what you’ll want to wear home. If you’re packing in advance, be sure to consider the weather in your wardrobe decisions. You might even find an adorable matching number for you and baby.
  • Pillow. Are you particular about the pillow you use? Bring your favorite. And slip it into a colorful pillowcase so it won’t blend in with the hospital pillows.
  • Flip flops. Yes, hospital floors and showers are cleaned regularly. But, you know, you may just feel more comfortable showering with added protection.

If you know you’re having a cesarean delivery, also consider these items:

  • Support underwear. Bringing some C-section recovery underwear can be nice because it’s high-waisted and offers light compression. Alternatively, you may want some fold-over underwear that sits under your incision.
  • Compression wrap. You may also bring something like the Belly Bandit for added postpartum belly support. Ask your doctor for guidelines, including when you can start wearing a wrap like this.
  • Loose clothing. You may be more comfortable wearing clothing items, like nightgowns versus pants, that don’t rub against your incision.
  • Special snacks. Beat post-surgery constipation with snacks that contain plenty of fiber, like an apple or instant oatmeal with dried fruit.

Your little one will be covered with most supplies for their time in the hospital. In fact, some delivery units may even require — for safety measures — that babies wear hospital-branded onesies until you’re discharged.

Try packing baby’s items in the diaper bag you plan on using once they’re born.

  • Going home outfit. While it’s not the first thing you’ll use, it may be the most exciting. Have some fun picking out what your baby will wear home. Be sure to consider the weather in your planning. You may want to pack a spare in case one outfit gets dirty.
  • Diapers and wipes. If you have specific diapering in mind, bring a pack of what you intend to use with you to the hospital. This includes newborn cloth and a wet bag if you plan to do cloth from the start.
  • Swaddle or receiving blankets. You may want a few of your own swaddles to wrap baby and practice (ask the nurses for pointers!) for those days when you’re on your own. Also check out our swaddling tutorial!
  • Blanket. If it’s winter or otherwise chilly, you can use a thicker blanket to snuggle baby in their car seat on the way home. Alternatively, you may want to outfit your car seat with a bunting of some type.
  • Mittens, booties, and hat. If your little one is born with long fingernails, a pair of mittens can help avoid scratches on their face. And depending on the weather, a pair of booties and a hat can keep baby nice and toasty.
  • Formula and bottles. If you’re planning to formula feed from the start, you may or may not be able to bring your own formula and bottles. Call ahead to find out your facility’s policy.
  • Car seat. You’ll need to have your car seat installed before you can leave the hospital. Try putting it in several weeks before you plan to deliver — some seats can be tricky to install.
  • Photo props. If you have those cute little milestone cards or a special family blanket/hat/sentimental item, don’t forget to pack them for your first photos announcing baby to the world.
  • Baby book. Use this to capture your baby’s footprints and jot down a few notes to remember the first few days. You can skip this one if you plan to use a digital baby book, like Qeepsake.

Don’t forget your partner! The hospital likely doesn’t provide much for them — besides an awkward sleeper couch to crash on.

  • Comfortable clothing. Again, you’ll likely be staying at least one night in the hospital. Your partner should bring some pajamas and other lounge clothing that will be cozy and practical for hanging with a newborn.
  • Comfortable shoes. They should also consider bringing slippers that grip or other comfortable shoes and socks.
  • Toiletries. While the basics will be provided to you, they may not be extended to anyone else. Remind your partner to think essentials, like shampoo, face wash, lotion, deodorant, and toothbrush/toothpaste.
  • Medications. Your medications are typically provided if you don’t bring them, but your partner will need to bring anything they’re currently taking.
  • Glasses or contacts. Your partner will need glasses and contacts supplies, like saline, as well.
  • Phone and charger. You may not always be able to find a free moment, but your partner can keep your family and friends updated on your little one’s arrival.
  • Camera. If your phone doesn’t have a great camera on it, have your partner bring one to snap some photos of the big day.
  • Pillow and blanket. Hospital provisions aren’t exactly the warmest. Again, if your partner packs a pillow, put it in a colorful pillowcase so it won’t blend in with hospital ones.
  • Snacks. Labor and delivery can be a long process, and you don’t exactly want your partner slipping away to the cafeteria every 5 minutes. Pack some of your partner’s favorite snacks. Meal replacement bars may be helpful. (And pack some extras for yourself while you’re at it.)
  • Water bottle. You’ll probably take over the water cup provided to you. So, have your partner bring an extra one to stay hydrated and happy.
  • Book or magazine. You’ll be busy, but your partner may want some reading material during the long wait or while you’re sleeping/resting.
  • COVID-19 essentials. Wearing a facial covering may be required by the hospital you’re in, so ask the hospital what they require in terms of face coverings. They may supply or ask you to bring your own. Consider also bringing disposable gloves and hand sanitizer.

In the end, what you pack for your hospital or birth center stay is up to you and your individual needs. Try making a list of the things that you think are essential to your own comfort and wellness.

And don’t sweat it if you forget something or — gasp! — don’t pack your bag in time for labor. (Hey — it happens!) Chances are you’ll have most of what you’ll need — or you can send someone out to get the rest after your baby is born.

Shopping Tips for Maternity and Nursing Bras

Wondering when to buy a maternity bra? There’s no hard and fast rule, but women often find it’s time to buy a good maternity bra around week 18 of pregnancy. And no, your current bra in three sizes bigger won’t do the trick—maternity and nursing bras are specifically designed to provide the best support for growing, pregnant and breastfeeding bodies. But just because you find a maternity bra that fits now, doesn’t mean that it’ll be your perfect size after baby arrives. “It’s not unusual to change bra sizes within the first few weeks of breastfeeding,” says New York City stylist Samantha Brown—so if you’re shopping before baby’s debut, consider buying one or two sizes larger than usual, so you have one ready to wear after birth.

The same features you look for when shopping for a regular bra are especially crucial when you’re looking for a bra while pregnant or breastfeeding. Your girls are working hard for you and baby, so accommodate them well! The best nursing bras include these key components:

  • Comfort. This should be at the top of your nursing bra must-have list during the first four to six weeks after having baby, says Stephanie Nguyen, founder of Modern Milk and a certified lactation consultant. She recommends stretchy nursing bras to accommodate the breast changes moms experience during this time. “Look for nursing bras in soft fabrics,” Nguyen says. You’ll also want to pick a bra with thick back closures that have four or more hooks and wide, cushioned straps, plus a band that doesn’t ride up in the back.

  • Support. Breasts filled with milk are fuller (and heavier), so you’ll want more support than you had before baby. A supportive nursing bra also prevents sagging breasts after baby graduates from breastfeeding. “The band under the bust should be snug,” Brown says, but make sure the straps don’t cut into your shoulders. “An ill-fitting bra can impact a woman’s posture, and lead to strain and tension headaches,” she warns.

  • Coverage. The cup should fully cover your breast—something you’ll especially appreciate around six weeks postpartum. “I personally like bras with molded cups to help disguise nursing pads and nipples that may be a bit larger than before,” Nguyen says.

  • Ease. The best nursing bras make it seamless to breastfeed. “Look for removable pads, no underwire (if it’s a sleeping bra) and clips for easy feeding,” Brown says.

Best Maternity and Nursing Bras for Everyday Wear

So how can you tell if you’ve found the best maternity or nursing bra for you? “If it fits, if it’s comfortable, if it’s easy to nurse in and you like the style,” Nguyen says. Pick up at least two nursing bras for daily wear, Brown suggests, so you’ll always have one on hand when the other is in the wash. Here, find some of the all-around best maternity and nursing bras out there.

Hospital Bag Must Haves For Labor And Delivery from an L&D Nurse!

Looking for a hospital bag checklist? For a first time mom, I was SUCH a slacker when it came to packing my hospital bag for labor. I was lucky I didn’t go into labor a few weeks early, because I would not have been prepared!

For my second birth, I wanted to be way more organized and thoughtful about my hospital bag situation. I created a whole hospital bag highlight over on my Instagram with the details if you learn better via video.

But for those that want an article to reference, I also put all that info here! The long and short of it is that I’m a BIG fan of packing individual bags for labor, recovery, dad, and baby. This keeps everything so much more organized.

I’ll get into what should be in each of those bags below. Ready mama, let’s get packin’!

Hospital bag checklist for mom

When it comes to packing your own bag, I really liked packing up all my stuff into two separate bags (well, technically a smaller bag within a bigger bag). One for labor and delivery and one for postpartum. This way, my husband didn’t have to root through (and dishevel) a million extra items to find something I wanted while laboring.

It also meant that my postpartum bag was nice and organized and ready to go for the second half of our hospital stay. While this isn’t essential I really liked the way this worked out.

Your hospital bag checklist for labor

  • Gum: I know I’m not the only mama that likes to have minty gum for labor. It helps with the dry mouth feeling and can also help with nausea. I get super nauseous whenever I’m in pain, so this is key for me
  • Essentials Oils: there are all kinds of ways to use essential oils for labor! I made a special labor blend to use as a massage oil during birth (see what I did and what I used in this highlight) and also brought a roll-on blend meant for nausea
  • Chapstick: lips get super dry during labor because of all the heavy breathing. Definitely bring this and put your partner in charge of making sure you use it/offering it
  • Hospital Gown: you don’t have to bring this, but some mamas like to bring their own gown instead of using the one provided
  • Hair Ties/Bands/Bobby Pins: get that hair outta your face!
  • Preggie Pops: again, nausea during labor is a thing for me, so I wanted to be super ready for it. Remember these from the first trimester? They’re baaaaaaack
  • Ginger Candies: The other good thing about all these hard candy options? A nice burst of sugar/energy during labor, too! These ones have honey in them which is a popular little labor pick-up/ boost

Hospital bag checklist for postpartum

  • Phone chargers: your phone is going to be running on low battery with all the texts, phone calls, and pictures you’ll be taking. So, common sense, just don’t forget it!
  • Your own personal toiletries: I brought skincare stuff, toothbrush, and paste, dry shampoo, brush, etc. But you bring what you need to feel clean and comfortable
  • Shower sandals: I see how yucky those floors get and how they get cleaned. Bring some $1 plastic flip flops from Old Navy.
  • Loose PJ pants for night: So, I am totally a yoga pants kind of girl. I live in them. But in postpartum, you’re actually going to want to bring some loose pj’s or sweat pants for sleeping to accommodate your postpartum pad situation. Ones with a wide waist band are perfect
  • Robe/nursing-friendly PJ shirt: something loose, something with easy access to the boob. Love this nursing friendly PJ set
  • Night nursing bras or camis: this will be a personal preference, but having some light support will keep you more comfortable when your milk comes in, even if you don’t typically sleep in a bra. Kindred Bravely’s is the BEST
  • Maternity leggings and nursing tanks for day: I personally felt more comfortable putting on more of “daytime” clothes, but you can also totally just hang out in PJs the whole time
  • Socks: My feet get freezing, extra fuzzy, grippy ones are a great choice
  • Your own pillow: hospital pillows suck. Bring yours from home and thank me later
  • Breastfeeding pillow: something like the Boppy or My Brest Friend pillow. These make nursing a lot easier, and learning with one from the start can make a WORLD of a difference
  • Breastpump: you probably won’t need to pump during your hospital stay, but it’s a good idea to bring it because the lactation consultant on staff can teach you how to use it if you ask!

Packing a hospital bag for baby

I always pack pretty minimally for baby. The hospital will provide you with MOST of the essentials. In fact, I always say that you could literally show up with nothing for baby (or yourself for that matter) and you’d actually be totally fine.

The hospital will have diapers, wipes, baby care stuff, free samples, etc. so don’t go crazy here. Here’s what I recommend packing:

  • Cute Swaddles: It’s nice to have a few of your own for picture purposes instead of the generic hospital swaddles
  • Nail clippers: Sometimes babies come out with sharp little nails that already need clipping. I’m picky and like to have easy to use ones, but the hospital can probably give you some basic ones if you forget/don’t bring any
  • Pacis: It’s generally not recommended to use pacis in the beginning, especially if you plan to breastfeed, but I like to bring some JUST IN CASE
  • Hand mittens: These little ones often scratch their own faces in the early days and weeks. Hand mittens can help with this
  • Going home outfit: YAY! so fun to pick this out ahead of time. I like to bring a few choices, one in newborn size, one in 0-3 month, and for different temperatures. This way you can pick what’s just right! You can also go the personalized route ?
  • Aquafor Baby: Bonus tip! Put this on baby’s booty right from the start, it makes it SO MUCH EASIER to wipe off the sticky newborn poop (meconium)

Hospital bag for dad

Haha, this one feels the easiest for sure. And honestly, your partner can probably handle their own bag. But I included it because there are some things they may not think of for the hospital stay.

  • Toiletries
  • Shower shoes
  • Chargers
  • Clothes/undies/socks
  • Comfy clothes/PJs
  • Snacks (I think putting these in dad’s bag makes sense, bars, trail mix, whatever you guys like)

What you don’t need on your hospital bag checklist

I remember making a HUGE list of items that I thought I needed during my stay, only to find out I didn’t really need the things I thought I did. So I felt like I wanted to include some of the leave at home items too!

  • Multiple outfits for baby: You’re only going to be there for 2 or 3 days max. Other than a going home outfit, I would not stress about bringing more than *maybe* one other cute outfit to put baby in, for a photo op. Honestly most hospitals provide long sleeve white onesies, so no worries, baby won’t be naked! 🙂
  • Underwear: WHAT?! DON’T BRING UNDERWEAR? NOPE. Whether you have a vaginal delivery or a c-section, you’re going to be bleeding a TON after you give birth. Hospitals provide really fancy, super stretchy mesh underwear for this reason. Things are going to get messy…so leave your own underwear at home and take advantage of the disposable ones they provide you. ALTHOUGH, these lovely postpartum panties are a godsend to have once you return home.
  • Hairdryer: Nope, don’t need this. Trust me, you aren’t going to care about your wet hair.
  • Baby book: You’re not going to have the time or energy to write in this thing. Leave it at home. I do REALLY love this one though for when you get home!
  • Diapers and wipes: The hospital provides all diapers and wipes for baby, so you do not need to worry about bringing any of this stuff!

Ready to pack your hospital bag?

There you have it! Like I said earlier, I’m a minimalist. Don’t over-pack. It’s just more you have to UNPACK when you get home and have a baby to take care of.

One more tip: once it’s all packed up, put a notecard or post-it on top of the bag with any last-minute things that need to be added before go time. Things like chargers, your wallet or that favorite pair of maternity leggings you don’t want to be packed away for the next 3ish weeks ?

While we’re on the topic of labor, I have to ask – have you taken a childbirth class yet? It’s not too late and will make ALL the difference in your birth experience. Head here to learn about my online birth classes!

So, did you bring any (or all) of these items with you to the hospital? Tell me in the comments!

Happy Delivery Day! 🙂

Our goal is your best memories of childbirth

— epidemiological norms and European comfort standards, and is one of the largest and most modern
maternity hospitals in the capital. Maternity hospital 29 covers an area of ​​17,500 sq.m., which is twice as much as is usually laid down in the design. A large number of treatment and auxiliary areas ensure the comfort of stay and maximize
possibilities of the treatment process.

In 2017, following the results of the Moscow Healthcare Festival «Formula of Life», we received the official title « The Best Maternity Hospital in Moscow «.

Safe delivery

Maternity hospital 29 is part of a well-equipped multidisciplinary hospital, which allows you to quickly attract the best doctors and provide assistance in difficult situations. The maternity hospital has a pediatric intensive care unit and a department
nursing premature babies, and in difficult situations, a clinical psychologist will come to the rescue.

Gentle childbirth without pain

Gentle childbirth is, first of all, respect for the woman’s health and the possibility of a speedy postpartum rehabilitation, as well as the most modern methods of obstetric care. Roddom 29 supports
natural childbirth and free behavior of a woman. In our maternity boxes, which, by the way, are all individual, there is everything necessary for the comfort of the expectant mother. Fitballs, jacuzzi, wall bars and a rope are all at your disposal.
Our anesthesiologists will tell you about the possibilities of anesthesia and the types of anesthesia and analgesia, and perform it according to your desire.

Vertical birth

We practice vertical birth, in which the child moves through the birth canal with the least energy costs and minimal trauma to the soft birth canal of the mother — practically
there are no deep injuries and ruptures. Another important advantage is the reduction of the first stage of labor.

Comfort, support and caring attitude

We understand how important it is for a mother and her baby to spend such important days in comfort, so we did everything to make you feel comfortable and have the best memories of the days spent in 29maternity hospital. All delivery boxes
are individual, a loved one may be present at the birth (partner birth). In the postpartum department, a joint stay of mother and child is organized from the first minutes until the discharge itself. Every employee is ready to help
any time, consult and answer all questions. The maternity hospital also has a Breastfeeding Support Service.

The maternity hospital at City Clinical Hospital No. 29 is a specialized clinic for managing pregnancy and childbirth in patients with diabetes mellitus and other extragenital pathologies.

In our maternity hospital, high-tech and innovative methods of managing pregnant women are widely used at all stages, from the first days of pregnancy to childbirth, followed by dynamic monitoring of the woman in labor and the child.

The use of hyperbaric oxygenation in a hyperbaric chamber allows timely saturation of the blood of the mother and fetus with oxygen, which is important for pregnant women with concomitant extragenital pathology.

For intraoperative blood loss, the Cellselver apparatus is used to reinfuse autologous blood. This avoids possible complications during blood transfusions.

The department of gynecology has been successfully performing laparoscopic operations for several years using the Storz surgical laparoscopic stand on the uterus and appendages, which allows minimizing postoperative complications in the future.

About the Obstetric Observational Department

Obstetrics department of PKKB No. 1 was formed in 1985. The need for its creation was due to the lack of institutions in the Primorsky Territory providing specialized obstetric care to patients with cardiovascular and endocrine pathology.

Operating mode: 24/7

Due to the increase in cases of COVID-19, visits to departments with round-the-clock stay of patients are limited. In this regard, «Open Days» in the perinatal center are suspended until further notice.

Attention! To help young mothers, the Perinatal Center has created a telegram channel «Breastfeeding». How to feed properly and up to what age, how to find out that the child is hungry and why milk is expressed — maximum useful information from the specialists of the Pushkin Perinatal Center.

«CHILD BIRTH REGISTRATION» — all documents directly at the perinatal center

prof. V.N. Rozanova is a modern obstetric facility equipped with the latest technology. Taking into account the high qualification of medical personnel (allowing to take complicated births), an individual approach to each woman, conditions for receiving premature births (up to 37 weeks of pregnancy), women in labor and from neighboring cities tend to get here.
According to the MHI policy, everyone has this opportunity, regardless of their place of residence. People come to us to give birth from Ivanteevka, Sergiev Posad, Korolev, Mytishchi, Shchelkovo, Balashikha, Vladimir, Kaluga and Yaroslavl regions. And even from Moscow. At the same time, our institution provides a wide range of paid services.
Patients are provided with both planned and urgent medical care in the form of preparation for delivery.

All personnel of the perinatal center are «soft childbirth» — careful attitude to the health of a woman and the possibility of an early postpartum rehabilitation. An individual birth plan is created for each patient, and a midwife is constantly with each woman in labor, who is personally responsible for her.



PARTNER BIRTH (family-oriented birth, birth with a husband or other close person) — recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO). Partner childbirth is widespread in the world, accumulated experience and scientific data prove that the presence of a loved one at childbirth protects a woman from feelings of fear and loneliness, relieves emotional stress, strengthens mutual understanding of the couple, and, as you know, the psychological comfort of a woman during childbirth is the key to success . THIS SERVICE IN OUR PERINATAL CENTER IS PROVIDED FOR FREE!

MANDATORY CONDITIONS for partner births: the desire and consent of the future mother and father (or other partner), observation in the antenatal clinic, joint preparation for childbirth (at the «School of Expectant Parents»), medical examination of the future father or partner (fluorography — valid for 6 months, a certificate from a general practitioner about the state of health), the presence of special clothing (washable rubber or leather slippers, a clean tracksuit and a cotton T-shirt, or a self-purchased disposable surgical suit).

REGISTRATION OF DOCUMENTS for partner childbirth: a pregnant woman and her husband (partner, close person) at 37-38 weeks of gestation must come to an appointment with the acting. Andrey Leonardovich Lesnoy, Deputy Chief Physician for Childhood and Obstetrics, and/or Natalia Gennadievna Andreeva, Head of the Maternity Department, and Zhanna Vladislavovna Danelyan, Head of the Pathology Department for Pregnant Women. You must have an exchange card, the results of additional studies, a fluorography of a partner with you. After the interview, you must write an application for participation in partner childbirth. Don’t forget to take the signed application with you to the birth! Without it, you do not have the right to be present at the birth (we hope for your understanding).

PARTNER DELIVERY is carried out by doctors on duty in individual delivery boxes in the presence of a partner. The transfer and stay in the postpartum ward takes place without the accompaniment of a partner.

If you come for childbirth from home (antenatal clinic, etc.), the partner comes to the perinatal center with you (to the admission department).

If you are transferred for delivery from the department of pathology of pregnant women of our perinatal center, you inform your partner about this, and he comes to you for delivery on his own (in the emergency department).

In our hospital, early discharge is practiced: after spontaneous uncomplicated childbirth — on the 3rd day, after a caesarean section — on the 5th day. After discharge from the hospital, round-the-clock assistance can be provided in the admission department of the clinic.

The priority of the perinatal center is the high quality of medical care for the woman in labor and the newborn and safety with minimal interference in the natural process of childbirth, but under the close supervision of highly qualified specialists.

When staying together, mother and child stay together around the clock. A neonatologist examines a newborn every day in the ward, in the presence of his mother, tells his mother about his well-being, and answers questions. Children’s nurse will teach mom how to care for a newborn. During the stay of the child in the hospital, if there are no contraindications, vaccinations are given according to the national vaccination schedule (against hepatitis B and tuberculosis). All vaccinations are given with the written consent of the mother.

If the child is transferred to the second stage of nursing, the mother can visit him every day, care for him, feed him even after discharge from the perinatal center. It is also possible to be with the child around the clock and in the department of nursing newborns and premature babies.

Information about women who have given birth at the medical registrar daily from 9:00 to 18:00

Visits to the perinatal center with children are prohibited!

    The institution has comfortable wards for mothers and their children. For women, it is possible to choose a single or double room. But it will be comfortable not only for them, but also for their relatives, because in the corridors and halls they tried to create maximum comfort. Therefore, even the waiting time will be brightened up.

    Maternity Hospital No. 8 is equipped with high-tech equipment that allows for accurate diagnosis. Therefore, both women in labor and women in conservation can be sure that their health will be taken care of at the highest level. Ultrasound machines are available around the clock, whenever the patient arrives. The main plus is instant computer data processing. Therefore, the doctor will always be aware of the condition of the mother and her baby.

    In 2004, an intensive care unit for newborn babies was opened in the maternity hospital. Its capacity is 6 seats. To provide assistance, including emergency, specialists have at their disposal not only all the necessary tools and equipment, but also special wards. It is they who provide the opportunity to use the «Kangaroo method», in which a premature baby will have maximum contact with his mother. Every day, the baby is given to the mother so that she can hold him on her chest. This option is feasible with the father. This approach allows premature babies to gain weight faster and get used to the world around them.

    The staff of the maternity hospital consists only of highly qualified specialists who know and love their job. That is why little patients and their mothers feel care and experience even from the very first moment of their joint stay. The institution actively practices laying the baby on the mother’s stomach or chest immediately after birth, even if the baby was born full-term. Every nurse and doctor tries to make every effort to keep mother and child calm.

    The institution has a department of obstetrics with paid services. It has been operating for over 10 years. It provides personalized pregnancy management services, especially when it comes to a difficult pregnancy or childbirth. This department has a high-precision technique that allows you to identify even the slightest pathology. Here, an obstetrician-gynecologist is consulted, who prescribes ultrasound, laboratory diagnostics, dopplerometric and cardiomonitoring studies. Based on the results obtained, conclusions are drawn about the condition of the fetus. You can contact the department from almost any period, as there are programs for the integrated management of pregnancy from 12, 20, 28 weeks. Also, if desired, you can conclude a contract with a specific specialist who will take delivery and provide postpartum care.

    Not every woman can easily endure labor pains. Therefore, on the basis of the maternity hospital there is a wide range of painkillers, including epidural anesthesia. Depending on the wishes of the woman in labor, as well as her individual characteristics of the body, the specialist will select exactly the type of painkiller that will help her calmly endure the birth. In addition, during the entire process, the attending physician, anesthesiologist, neonatologist will be present next to the woman, who will control the entire process. And if we also take into account comfortable and soundproof maternity boxes, it becomes clear that in such conditions the expectant mother will feel much more comfortable. At the service of young couples, the possibility of partner childbirth is also provided. After the baby is born, he and his mother are transferred to a single room. Young parents have everything they need in the room to learn how to properly care for their child. In addition, during the day, specialists visit the ward to check the condition of the woman and the child. Each room is equipped with a baby changing table, a baby carrier, a bathroom with a shower and toilet, a refrigerator and a kettle, and a TV. Relatives can come to the mother with the child at any time. And when the time comes, the young family will be discharged, but this event is accompanied by photo and video shooting, so that in the future the baby can see, and the parent can remember, the first days of his crumbs.

    what to take in 2022

    Choosing a bag for the maternity hospital

    It should be borne in mind that over time, approaches to the process of obstetric care, the equipment of wards and delivery rooms and, accordingly, the requirements of maternity hospitals change. Before collecting the things necessary for the maternity hospital, decide whether it will be a partner birth or if you plan to give birth in a circle of exclusively medical personnel.

    The first thing to start with in the process of gathering is to decide on a bag. Please note that sports bags and suitcases are not accepted into the maternity hospital. It can be plastic bags, or light washable bags made of natural fabrics (denim, cotton, etc.), transparent bags.

    Tip: Websites for children sell special transparent roomy bags for the maternity hospital. It is better to buy a couple of pieces than to rush around with a mountain of plastic bags.

    The second important point: it is advisable to write a list of necessary things in advance. And then, as they are acquired, prepared, put into a bag, make appropriate marks. It will contain those things that you put in your bag before you go out. The list will help you not to forget documents or water prepared in advance in the refrigerator.

    Things that are needed for the maternity hospital can be conditionally divided into those that the mother will need before and after childbirth, and things for the baby. Also on this list may be medicines that the hospital or doctors require.

    List of medicines for the maternity hospital

    Here is the list of materials requested by the Kyiv Perinatal Center in 2014.

    Learn that it will be problematic to wash the sheet, shirt, and also the baby’s hat. Therefore, you should not buy too expensive things for the delivery room, they can be put on later in the ward.

    Also think ahead if you are planning to give an enema. It is advisable to immediately purchase special disposable enemas «normokol» in a pharmacy or take an ordinary pear with you, or at least a nozzle. The same goes for shaving accessories.

    If a partner birth is planned, it is advisable to ask the maternity hospital about tests for the father in advance (for example, bacteriological culture from the pharynx and nose is not required in all maternity hospitals). But fluorography (X-ray of the lungs) will need to be done. Usually, the result is entered in the exchange card of the woman in labor and there is no need to take a hotel statement about the result. Also, for the partner in childbirth, you will need to prepare clean washable slippers, clean and ironed items (for example, a T-shirt and sweatpants). On top of them, you may be asked to wear a disposable set: pants, bathrobe, shoe covers.

    To be discharged, you should not forget elegant things for mom, cosmetics, as well as a transforming blanket and things for the baby: a bodysuit, a warm hat. You can immediately purchase an elegant set.

    Shopping for a newborn: buying the essentials

    for a baby’s room

    Take my word for it — you need to buy everything in advance and, preferably, with a consultation or wishes of the expectant mother. Let it all be kept by parents, grandparents, relatives or friends. Because those short three days that mother and newborn will spend in the hospital will fly by VERY quickly, and dad will need to do VERY much.

    So, dad will need:

    Choose and buy a crib. It is advisable to take the crib with a stable platform so that the child cannot turn it over when he grows up. The price of a crib starts from 400 hryvnia (this is the most common wooden, Ukrainian-made, without any rocking wheels). Everyone has their own price range.

    It is obligatory to put a changing table or changing chest in room . The cost of a changing table starts from 700 hryvnia, and a changing chest from 1200 hryvnia. If there is very little space in the room, then you can use the changing board, which is installed on the crib. Cost from 250 hryvnia

    Choosing a stroller is not easy either. Probably the most important thing in a stroller is large wheels, preferably inflatable ones, and springs for comfortable movement and reducing baby’s shaking. It is also important that the stroller folds and unfolds comfortably. And, of course, it was not very heavy (after all, in most cases, mom will have to wear it). The cost of a universal stroller (the kit includes: a platform with wheels, a cradle, an armchair for the summer, a bag, a rain cover, a mosquito net, a pump) is also different and starts from about 1000 hryvnias.

    bath tub. You can, of course, bathe in a large bath, but that’s if you’re not afraid. And so — a small bath — a necessary thing. Cost — from 120 UAH.

    Don’t forget to buy bath pad . It will be comfortable for the baby to lie on it, and you will have free hands. Unless, of course, you pour too much water. The cost is 35 hryvnia.

    You can also buy a humidifier. Especially if it is a cold season outside, and the batteries are heating up in the house with might and main. It will help the child from drying out the mucosa and the formation of all sorts of goat snot there. The cost of the humidifier is from 500 hryvnia.

    Be sure to put in the room where the baby will sleep lamp with brightness control. It is very convenient when a lamp illuminates the room at night and when you wake up, you do not need to turn on bright lighting. The cost is from 80 hryvnia.

    Also, dad needs to think about children’s drugs for bloating (colic) . Read the forums for new parents, since there are enough of them, reviews and recommendations about them and buy a couple of such drugs at the pharmacy. And do not be lazy, do it in advance, because when a child suffers from a tummy, and there is nothing in the house that can help him, it is not very pleasant to fly to pharmacies at three in the morning. Cost — from 16 hryvnia. By the way, this applies not only to anti-colic drugs . It is advisable to make a first aid kit for him even before the birth of the baby.

    Another very necessary thing — napkins ! The child often spits up at first, and later drools. and all this needs to be wiped with something. Now there are paper napkins, there are 150 of them in a pack and they are inexpensive.

    Be sure to buy baby detergent. It is very good to wash baby little men with baby soap in bars.

    Very comfortable and will play an important role disposable diapers . Sold in a pharmacy (size 60×90 in a package of 5 pieces). It is very convenient to cut such a diaper into three parts and put the baby under the ass, say, on the changing table.

    Do not forget to buy a large pack of diapers . The first time they are used with a bang. The cost of a large package varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.

    Think Baby Fun — toys, teethers, rattles, stroller rattles, crib toys and more. Again, prices depend on the manufacturer and the materials from which the toy is made. Perhaps mom will want to buy a sling (by the way, a fairly comfortable thing for dad too) or a nursing pillow.

    Children’s Wet Wipes will come in handy on trips to the pediatrician — convenient to use when running water is not at hand. The cost is from 30 hryvnia.

    All parents raise their children differently, so feeding bottles and nipples can be added to the list.

    Definitely!!!! Wash everything bought — sterilize and do wet cleaning in the room!

    And one more thing. Doctors do not recommend scented flowers in a newborn’s room. Inflate better balloons.

    Useful information about children’s trademarks is available on the site, and you can find a medicine cheaper and closer to home using the reference site Everything else for the baby can also be purchased in online stores (,,, http://poigraika ) and Internet pharmacies, as it is possible to find a product cheaper.
