What to bring for your labor and delivery?
Mommies, first of all ensure that every thing you keep into your hospital bag should be clean and sanitised.Your munchkin must be safe from any virus or dirt.
Things that can spill must be kept safely and packed in polythene so that it do not make other things dirty.Things that you need as and when you enter your hospital
must be kept at the top of your hospital bag. Your bag must be large enough to contain all your essentials.Carry few poly bags or polythene for you.Keep foodies in another
bag so that its smell do not go into other items.Do carry cleaning cloth with you in case you need to clean something yourself in case of emergency in hospital room.

WHEN SHOULD I PACK MY HOSPITAL BAG FOR DELIVERY?
As your 8th month going to end, pack your bags properly. Pack you foodies later.Check your hospital bag checklist side by side. Tell your husband or caretaker about the items you placed into your bag and the place where you kept your bag ready so that they can fetch it in your absence or emergency.
Call stem cell agency while going to hospital for delivery so that they can collect the sample on time. Get child vaccinated for the first time as per doctor instruction.
