Hospital Checklist for Support Person

All the essentials a support person will need for the trip to the hospital

When the big day comes, give yourself some peace of mind. By preparing everything you’re going to need for the hospital in advance, you’ll ensure overnight stays and your little one’s first few days are as comfortable and carefree as they can possibly be.

Phone & Charger

These are important to have on hand for the long hours of support and waiting. And if mum forgets hers, she’ll thank you that you didn’t!

List of People To SMS / eMail

Whether of close friends, family or overseas relatives, a list of contacts at close at hand is good forward planning in case of emergency or simply to spread the good news.

Camera & Battery Charger

Used with mum’s permission, a camera is a great way to capture high quality images of those first special moments with the newborn baby.

Dressing Gown

Video Camera

Video cameras add a nice touch to marking the occasion and provide a good record of the moment – and visitors’ reactions – for enjoyment and reflection in the many good years to come.

Thongs

Swimwear And Towel For Bath And Shower
