Maternity Hospital - What to pack?

Japan With Kids - Forums: Health Topics: Pregnancy/Birth/Childrearing: Maternity Hospital - What to pack?
By Paula Hansen on Tuesday, August 24, 2004 - 10:06 pm:

I'm due in a couple of months and will be delivering at a small Japanese Women's Clinic.
My question is - what should I pack in my grab & run bag and what things do you think I will need?
In NZ all I took was my PJ's, undies, toiletries and a couple of good books, everything else was provided.
Advice from mother's experienced in these things would be greatly appreciated.

Things I found most useful were: a small folding Japanese fan, straws and bottled water (there will probably be vending machines but just in case they are too far). Don't forget your camera!!! :)
Good luck with your birth

One useful thing that my wife brought was a Mug-Mug cup (no-spill cup for babies). We poured her beverages, and she could drink from it without worry. We brought a portable tape player, but she didn't used it much. Otherise, we bought small snacks from the local convenience store outside.
Good luck,
