It’s good to be aware of the necessary preparations for labor.
You have done everything including going through a Private Ultrasound Scan at Watford to ensure a healthy pregnancy. Now it’s time to get ready for delivery.
It is exciting to know that the new love of your life will be with you soon after a long journey of pregnancy. We have given you a checklist to help you prepare, not only for labor but also for the delivery as well as your hospital stay.
As soon as you check-in, the hospital is going to require personal identification like your driving license and your insurance information. To easily take care of this, you can pre-register your admission.
Prepare your Birth Plan
It is important that you prepare your birth plan because it will tell your nurses and doctor your preferences regarding a wide range of things, from breastfeeding to cord blood banking to pain medication.
Shoes and Clothes
The hospital will obviously provide you with one of those open-back gowns. However, you will be allowed to wear something more comfortable once your baby is delivered. Pack your own nursing robe or tank top, sleeping gown and robe, and soft, stretchy pants and shirts.
Cell Phone & Accessories
You should remember to carry your cell phone and charger as you will want to receive messages, break the good news and also share photos about the new bundle of joy. It is also important to have your best music play as this can really help you focus when you are in labor. The music can also help soothe you and your baby after delivery.
Delivery Room Company
You should decide ahead of time the people you would want with you in the delivery room. For example, a close friend, a birth coach, or your partner. It is also advisable that you have a backup person in case your primary VIP is not able to be with you for one reason or the other.
Yes, labor and delivery will definitely be a workout for you. Therefore, you need to ask a family member or friend to deliver your favorite snacks and meals. You also need to prepare a treat for yourself ahead of time.
