Essentials For Hospital Delivery (Labor, Baby & Mommy)

This is kind of a mishmash post of things I wrote down while in the hospital that I thought were important for expectant moms…
Labor Essentials-These will all make sense to you when those contractions start kicking in!
  • Pregnancy pillow (great for support between legs)
  • Hot water bottle (you can buy them at the pharmacy for under 30 AED-great for lower back pains in active labor)
  • Cold drinks (bring your own)
  • Ice
  • Popsicles
  • Cold compresses or ice packs
  • Lip gloss
Newborn Essentials
  • 5x onesies (I love the newborn ones from Petit Bateau, a perfect fit!)
  • 3x socks
  • 2x blankets
  • Pack of diapers
  • Pack of wipes
  • Cotton balls to clean eyes/face
  • Coconut oil for a natural moisturizer
  • If you plan to bathe your baby at the hospital bring your own soap (I like using a gentle Camel Milk soap from https://www.facebook.com/CamelMilkSoaps?fref=ts)
Mommy Essentials
  • Nursing pyjama set
  • Nursing bra
  • Hair elastics/clips
  • Underwear (although I preferred the disposable ones post c-section!)
  • Slippers
  • Socks
  • Snacks
  • Going home outfit (something loose and comfy)
  • Toiletries (don’t forget your own shampoo/conditioner!)
  • Phone/charger
  • Camera/charger/memory card
  • Sanitary pads
  • Earth Mama Angel Baby-bottom balm (for natural delivery) or c-section salve
  • Earth Mama Angel Baby-nipple butter (savior!!!)
  • Earth Mama Angel Baby-milk maid tea (really helped with my supply)
