Aside from being an IBCLC trained lactation specialist, I’ve also been a labor and delivery RN for five years. From unexpected breech delivery to multiples to emergent c-section to everything in between. Let’s just say I’ve seen A LOT! This has given me a “behind the scenes” perspective on the labor, delivery, and postpartum process. So after many clients have asked me what they should put into their hospital bag, I came up with this list to share. Hopefully some of these things will make your recovery a little more comfortable and functional. Your spouse will thank me from having to run home 20 times!
20 Things to Pack
