How to Personalize your Hospital Bag Checklist for Mom
Don’t forget to add your name before you print. You can also change the title.
When should you prepare the hospital bag?
The bag should be ready when you are 8 months pregnant in case you go into labor early. You should also keep a copy of the checklist in your bag so that you can double-check the contents of the bag closer to your delivery date. Sometimes, we take something out of the bag fully intending to return it but we don’t. This will ensure that you are not missing anything. You can also add things like snacks that might go off if you pack them too early.
