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 and one support person
Suggested Hospital Packing List:
- Car seat
- 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)
- 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!
