Getting ready to deliver your baby or babies, here are what to pack in hospital bag for delivery especially if you plan to deliver in Nigeria.

Your bag should be packed by 36 weeks at the very latest, earlier if possible. If you’re having twins or triplets then it should be by week 30. Try to restrict your luggage to a carry-on bag, and a separate bag for the labour ward. There is often not a lot of storage space in hospitals, and big bag can easily become a safety hazard. Remember that your partner and other family members will be visiting you and they can always bring in anything you have forgotten.
