What to Pack When Expecting
By: Carla Roberts Pruitt
(KUTV) - If you are expecting, grab a piece of paper and a pencil. We are going to tell you what you need to pack when you go to the hospital to deliver your baby. We spoke with Kristine Armstrong, a childbirth educator at Intermountain Medical Center, to help generate some ideas for pregnant women. The things you would want to bring would of-course be your personal toiletries; robes and slippers; pillows; entertainment for before labor and after.
Kristine says women should also pack: receiving blankets, nursing bras, a camera, and clothes for you and your baby. Anything that is your own is going to be more comfortable. You can bring things for you to wear at the hospital and to go home in.
Keesha Carpakis is pregnant with her first baby. She is already thinking about what to bring to the hospital when the time comes to deliver later this year. This is my first so it is really going to be a lot for me to know and to bring. I'm sure there are going to be a lot of things I am going to forget.
Experts say the best way to make sure you don't forget something is to pack your bag at least a month before your due date. You also need to bring some identification and your insurance information.
