What’s in my hospital bag ?😎
😇👉👉Please save this post if you are pregnant, planning to get pregnant, full term pregnant or if you don’t know what is a hospital bag?
👌🤰A hospital bag is what mom to be or her friends and relatives carry to hospital for her and baby during active labour and delivery.
🤷Once the water breaks or its time then it is highly unlikely that you will be able to collect all the stuff needed for this final phase so right way is to plan and prepare hospital bag well ahead.
👼Below in the pictures is this list which I have used for myself and share with all expecting friends and relatives.
Bonus : Along with this list are few tips(it’s labour I am talking about so just a few😍) for each of you the mom to be ,for the baby and every one else.
what is the right time to pack this hospital bag ?
😉😉Well, once you enter 9th month or anytime after 32 weeks is a good time to do it as you will have strength and hormones to do it or get it done. Print this list , discuss with your doctor, family and finalize what all you want to buy and carry in the hospital bag.
Funny bonus tip : 😀If you have OCD it is good to keep the print in your bag so anyone can check what items are present and help you out if needed. Please keep a backup know-where person who knows where everything is kept in case you are not able to tell or get it yourself.
💐This list is mainly customised for Indian families but can be referred by everyone 💐
.(Please do refer to the info graphs☺️☺️☺️)
