Hospital Bag Checklist

Hospital Bag Checklist

It's easy to overpack when it’s time to ready your hospital bag, so we're here to help.

Hillcrest Medical Center provides the following for our labor & delivery patients:

  • Care package including a toothbrush, toothpaste and soaps
  • Pads, mesh underwear and cleansing wipes
  • Diapers and wipes for baby
  • Three meals for patients

Suggested Hospital Packing List:

  • Car seat
  • Robe
  • Phone charger (an extra-long cord is a plus but not a necessity!)
  • Special toiletry items
  • Going home outfit for baby (and mom too!)
  • Clothes and sleeping items for a support person, if applicable (we have in-room couches)

Bonus items:

  • Favorite snacks
  • Favorite pillow or breastfeeding support pillow

In the end, pack what will make you most comfortable and don’t be afraid to ask your care team if you need something. We're here to support you!
