Remember: These are just guidelines and the things you will need in any event or circumstance once at the hospital. Don’t worry about the extras – your partner or a family member can always go home or to the store should you run out of anything.
Use this list to tick and check before rolling and packing into your bag.
Use a suitcase to fit everything, instead of having an individual bag for each baby.
