Maternity and Hospitalisation
The BIG day has finally arrived. You are about to be a mother now. Let’s look at some tips on how you can manage your first maternity hospitalisation better.
Signs of Labour
Ensure that you have signs of labour such as rupture of membrane and contractions.
Hospital registration card
Insurance card (if any)
Pre-natal records from your doctor’s office
Name of your baby’s paediatrician (if any)
Birth plan (if any)
Mother’s clothing (Lots of underpants, loose & comfortable clothes, slippers, toiletries, maternity pads, etc)
Baby’s clothing (Diapers, receiving blanket, mittens, socks, etc)
Mother’s food & snacks (Mineral water, juices, yogurt, chocolate bar, fresh fruits, etc)
Other things such as massage oil, lotions, medications, etc
Most of the questions about your hospital stay will already be addressed when you choose your doctor & hospital. Make sure that you are well-versed on the hospital’s procedures and regulations. Seek help from the attending nurses should you need further assistance.
