Birth plan, check. Camera, check. Phone charger, check. Wondering what to take to the hospital? Listed below are 10 items we think will make your hospital stay a little more comfortable.
Baby Bump Fitness Ball
Don’t leave home without this unique stability ball from Baby Bump! Not only is it a must-have for prenatal fitness and to relieve back and pelvic discomfort throughout your pregnancy, but it’s also a great addition to pack in your hospital bag and use during those countless labor hours. You’ll be so happy you packed it! There are dozens of positions to use the ball during labor, but one of our favorite is to sit on it, lean forward on a stack of pillows and bring on the back massage! Throw in some essential oils, tranquil music and you’ve got one relaxed mama-to-be. Unlike other balls on the market, Baby Bump has six stability legs which makes it very stable. We love it! $40.
