What I bring to the Hospital

After spending a great amount of time in the hospital or in doctor’s offices from the time I was born I’ve gotten done it down to a science to what to bring to the hospital. It’s great to have a reference list for a what to bring to the hospital. Sometimes it’s only a doctors appointment and you just need a list of questions and then sometimes you are in the hospital for a week or more.

Comfort

  • back pillow
  • Pillows
  • Weighted blanket and regular blanket
  • Photos and memories from home
  • things to decorate my space if I’m going to be there for sometime ex. lights,

Entertainment

  • iPad and ipencil
  • laptop
  • Wireless headphones
  • Portable phone charger and chargers
  • Couple of books

Clothes

  • Leggings and loose fitting T-shirt’s and undershirts, underwear, socks
  • Sports bra
  • Sweaters
  • Robe

Health and Bathroom

  • Bathroom kit – toothbrush and paste, face wash, dry shampoo and feminine products are a must
    • makeup like coverup, mascara, eyeshadow if needed
  • Medication
  • Water bottle
  • Notebook and daily planner for any health related stuff
  • List of questions to ask doctor – whether it’s at the doctors appointment or while you are in the hospital
  • Notebook so you can keep around to write any questions you may have to ask your health team, nurses, doctors, anyone while you are in the hospital
