This is the time to pack your maternity bag as you are nearing your due date. It is necessary to keep all the essentials packed in your bag as you will need them during the labour and birth of the baby.

Hi, if you are 36 weeks pregnant it’s high time you start packing your maternity bag for the hospital. There are some hospitals which allow some things along with you. You can bring things which can make you comfortable.

Try to make a list of things you want to pack. Try to pack two bags one for labour and one after the birth of the baby. Pack all the things which you require.

There are some hospitals which provide all the things, so it is not necessary to carry way too much stuff you it is already available in the hospital. Try to carry personal belongings and stuff you need regularly.

Hi, I would like to suggest you to add these things in your maternity bag. You can take maternity notes and add your birth plan. A dressing gown which is light weight and comfortable, mostly dark colours which will hide stains.

Hello, you can carry a pair of slippers which are comfortable and easy to wear, also carry some comfortable socks which will come in handy if your feet get cold. You can carry an old night dress for sleeping at night in the hospital.

You should pack these things in your maternity bag as you will require these in the hospital. Carry a lotion or a massage oil for massaging in the hospital, you can also carry a lip balm as your lips tend to get dry during the labour.

Hi all, do not forget to carry snacks and water in your bag along with glucose drinks which will be good during your stay at the hospital. Take your favourite magazines and books to pass time and relax.
