What to pack

It's always a good idea to have a suitcase packed and ready to take to the hospital, just in case. We recommend that you have your bag ready when you are around 34 weeks pregnant.

What you pack is a personal choice, it can range from the general items like toothbrush, toothpaste and make-up to personal items like your favorite pillow, photos of your loved ones or some soothing music.

Please keep in mind that Chester County Hospital does everything in their power to protect your items during your stay, but to be cautious, please leave behind items of value that may be misplaced during your stay.
