Here are some suggestions to help you get ready for your labour and birth.

Hospital paperwork – registration card/health record or similar
Medicare card and/or private health insurance company card
Lip Balm/paw paw ointment
Hair bands
Water bottle
Snacks, drinks and spare clothes/swimmers/towel for your birthing partner – in case they want to get in the shower with you.
Snack food
Music and some way to play it
Heat pack
Baggy shirts/singlets
Your own pillow (hospital ones can be a bit small and having your own pillow really helps)
Nice moisturiser
Dry shampoo (if you've had a c-section you may not be able to shower for a few days)

We'd love to hear from you...what did you pack in your hospital bag (or wished you'd packed maybe) that made the experience easier?
