Unfortunately, you have very little control over how long your labour will last, how painful it will be, or what possible complications you might encounter, but you have a little control over how comfortable you are during that time. This list will help you stay comfortable and should provide everything you need.
I welcome comments, though; if there's something you think should be included or something you feel isn't neccessary, let me know by commenting below!
The What to Take to Hospital List
That's about it. Some things you may find you don't use at all, other things you may find you're sending someone home to pick up more of. But if you have everything on this list you should be pretty well set. I definitely reccommend a few comfort items or treats.
Finally, my husband and I usually try to pick up some kind of treat for the nurses. With our oldest two we bought them all lunch, with our youngest it was flowers and a couple of boxes of chocolates for the nursing station. Do this on the day your child is born, not when you leave. A little bribery can go a long way.
