As a first time mom I am not pretending i’m an expert in all things pregnancy but I have been doing a ton of research and taking your guys’ opinions so I can hopefully be prepared for what is to come next! After lots of reading and taking your guys’ suggestions I was able to compile my hospital bag musts! After I give birth I will make sure to come back and update this blog post on what was the most important items I packed and what things I could have lived without.




I also decided to make a nurse’s basket to gift my immediate nurses and the nurses on my floor with something sweet for all the care they will be giving me! Here are some of the things I put into my basket:

for my main nurses I got them something a little extra:

Lastly… again I have never given birth so I am not 100% sure of what my hospital plan will actually be able to be executed but this is what I am hopeful for!

What I have currently written into my hospital plan:

  • delayed cord clamping: I want to wait until the cord is completely white until they cut the cord – here’s the research WHY
  • delayed bath for the first 24 hours (the baby’s vernix is so great for his skin so I want to delay removing it as he gets acclimated to being earth side) – here’s an article on the benefits of delaying your baby’s first bath
  • skin to skin contact immediately to help with bonding and milk production (benefits can be found HERE)
  • I’ll be asking the hospital if they have an aluminum free / preservative free vitamin k option
  • I am asking for the hospital staff to allow me to have a physiological birth unless medical intervention is 100% needed meaning instead of telling me to push I want to wait until my body instinctively is ready to push (that’s if I can make it natural)
  • placenta is to be released for encapsulation – I have read conflicting research on whether or not this is actually beneficial but I am willing to try anything 🙂
