    Your Per-Packed Luggage to Hospital: (got from Ar chi co store)
    Mother:
    Identity card / relevant doc
    Follow -up card
    Anternatal book
    A cup
    Accessories for morning and evening toilet
    Tissue paper
    Slippers
    Maternity pads and belt cone roll of 1 cotton bandage
    Brassiere
    Underpad ( protective sheet)
    Mesh pants
    Cleansing bottle( wound cleansing)
    Coins or telephone card

    Baby list
    New born diapers
    Cotton wool
    Baby Wipes
    Big Towel
    Baby's first outfit for check out
    receiving blanket
    Your Milk formular sealed box (for mom's that expect c-section)

    I will deliver in private hospitals so some of the things will already be provided by hospital. If you going to public ones do bring all your things with you.

    Enjoy packing! i need to pack mine too ;)

    One thing I'd like to add, if you are giving birth in a public hospital (and maybe even the private hospitals here in HK) I recommend bringing ice packs and baby diapers--but not for the purpose you might think. You may have been told to bring post-partum pads for bleeding but when I gave birth I had some perineal bruising so the clever nurses took a baby diaper, cut it open horizontally and took a ice pack (one of the ones you twist to activate--disposable) and put it inside--the diaper is much more absorbant and softer than the post-partum pads and the ice pack provided a lot of comfort and relief. Also on my list are a topical pain relieving spray such as Dermoplast or Lanacaine that can be sprayed on any sensitive areas--it's cooling, doesn't sting and relieves pain.

    Hi MLBW,

    Thank you so much for your recommendation. May I ask where you get these type of ice packs from? Also where can I get pain reliving spray from, does any pharmacy sell it? Thanks again
