You will need to have the following items at home,
whether you plan on having a home birth or a hospital birth:
You should wash new baby clothes before you use them. Your baby’s skin is very sensitive, so don’t use fabric softener.
If your insurance policy doesn’t cover a maternity package, you will have to purchase one yourself. We sometimes have extra supplies from other maternity kits, so feel free to ask during your appointment.
Make sure your hospital bag is packed by week 36 of your pregnancy.
