Hospital bag

I really need to pack my hosp bag, I’m 38+2 and still haven’t done it! I get overwhelmed when I look at the list! What would you say is essential and what can be left? How many days should I pack for?

Also having a back up bag to leave in the car with spare pads etc in case we need more

I’m in the process of packing mine too! I’ve packed a few bits for dad too as our hospital can be really warm so don’t want him to get too uncomfortable if we are there for a while

A fan was essential in my first labour too!!
