What’s in Your bag? (Hospital delivery bag that is.)

January 17, 2013

There are many places to find a list of what to bring with you to the hospital and I debated on whether or not to post one here. I decided to go for it because everyone’s list will be different and on every list I have found something I would have missed otherwise.
