What to pack for my delivery?

Now is the time to gather all the essentials that you'll need for the delivery stay. So that you can stay calm when the day arrives.

Many first-time parents ask: "What do I need to pack for my delivery?" Let me suggest a list.


Do not be daunted by this long list — you do not need to bring all the things that I recommend. Pick what you and your partner need. Customise your own list to make yourself comfortable at the delivery suite. Here are some hot favourite items.


For Mum:

  • Toiletries (may be provided by hospital)

  • Towel/facecloth (most mums prefer personal ones)

  • 2 loose fitting nighties — preferably breastfeeding friendly (if you are not keen to use the hospital gown)

  • Slippers

  • Few pairs of underwear (preferably disposable)

  • Socks (if you feel cold easily)

  • Nursing bras

  • Clothing to wear when discharge

  • Charger

Birth plan — if you do have one.


For Dad:

  • Some reading material or laptop when your spouse is resting

  • Toiletries

  • Change of clothes

  • Sweater (Delivery suite is incredibly cold)

  • Charger

For Baby:

  • One baby outfit upon discharge

  • Receiving blanket

  • One pair of socks or booties

  • One pair of mittens (so that baby doesn't scratch the face)

  • Cap

After Delivery:

  • Name list of people to call once baby arrives. You may inevitably forget to call someone

  • Digital camera or handphone — to capture the precious moments
