Forgetting something important is the last thing a mother-to-be wants to think about during labor and delivery. For your peace of mind and to ensure a comfortable childbirth experience, we have provided a simple checklist of items for you to bring with you to Bay Medical’s Family Birth Center.

You may want to pack two bags – a small overnight bag for the items you will need during labor and a larger bag for everything else that you will need later.
