Hospital paperwork, ID, and insurance card – Also have a copy of your medical records with you to let the healthcare providers have easy access to your medical history.
Birth plan – If you have a birth plan it’s convenient to bring a printed copy.
A delivery gown and robe – In general the hospitals provide you with gowns but they’re usually uncomfortable, unflattering and washed with strong chemicals. You might want to pace the halls during hours of labour. You don’t want everyone to see your behind and the robe will keep you warm if it’s chilly. Have a look at beautiful and price worthy gowns and robes in regular size and plus size lists under the links.
Socks – If you get cold. If you like the socks in the picture you can find them in my post about delivery gowns.
Slippers for walking and Flipflops for showers. I made the mistake of bringing my favorites from home because I wanted to feel cozy. I managed to get blood on the and they were ruined.
Lipblam – A lot of breathing through the mouth can make your lips really dry.
Music – Or other things that can keep you calm and focused.
Snacks and drinks – I would recommend bringing things you really like. Don’t worry soo much about being healthy. You need energy and it’s common to feel nauseous. Make sure to bring some for after the birth as well.
