  1. A going-home outfit. You’ll need loose comfortable clothes to wear while you’re in hospital and for the journey home. It will take a while for your tummy to go down, so you’ll need your maternity clothes for the first few weeks when you come home.
  2. Nursing bras. Take one or two.
  3. Breast pads.
  4. Maternity/sanitary pads. Take a couple of packs.
  5. Nightdress or top. Front-opening ones are useful in the early days of breastfeeding.
  6. A shawl, stole or dupatta to cover yourself while breastfeeding.
  7. Toiletries and make up.
  8. Comfortable panties. Don’t bring your best ones as they will get messy. If you end up having a caesarean, stretchy panties would be comfortable to wear over your scar.
  9. Supportive shoes or sandals.
