If you’re looking for newborn photography for your baby near Arlington VA then you’ve come to the right place!


Expectant mother hospital bag list.
Preparing  in advance for going to the hospital will take some of the stress off of  you when it is time for the big event.  First, sit and down and plan what you need to take with you. Creating a list of all the necessary items will help.  Some help to get you organized from What to Pack for the Hospital Bag| Pregnancy Guide | Mom365 will give you a good start.

You can have two bags one for you and one for the baby.

Some things for you to include in your bag are:

Health insurance card

Comfortable outfit to wear while you are in labor.  Some hospitals permit you to wear your own clothing while others will ask you to wear a hospital gown.

Toiletries, including shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, deodorant, makeup, toothpaste and a toothbrush.

Lip balm

Snacks for your birthing partner.  Even if you are not allowed to eat, if the labor lasts a long time then your partner should have something available to eat.

Something to read to keep your mind occupied .

Camera and extra batteries to document the big event.

MP3 player and cell phone including chargers.

Comfy clothing for after the birth when you have visitors.

Nursing bra, nipple cream and breast pads.

A special pillow for you and a nursing pillow

Sanitary napkins

Going home outfit.  Yoga pants and a loose fitting shirt is a  good choice.

Bag for the baby would include:

Formula–if you are using formula for the baby

Special going home outfit.

Receiving blankets



Car seat that is properly installed

There may be other things that you want to include but this outline should help you prepare and not be scrambling at the last second.  After all you have more important things to concentrate on when the labor pains start.
