Preparing for Childbirth: What to bring to the hospital

Pregnant womanIt’s almost here…the day you’ve been waiting for. Whether this is your first child or your fifth, you may be eager, excited or even a little nervous. At Duke Regional, we are committed to providing a memorable experience for you and your loved ones. Wondering what to bring to the hospital? We recommend:

  • comfortable walking shoes or non-skid slippers
  • a robe
  • comfortable clothes to wear home
  • a nursing/support bra
  • three or four receiving blankets
  • an outfit for baby to wear home (we suggest something with legs as they work better with car seats)
  • two to three diapers
  • Your favorite snacks, although the hospital has a cafeteria and 24-hour vending machines
