How to prepare for your childbirth

At Integrated Women’s Health, we want your experience to be as easy and seamless as possible. As your due date approaches, there are a few things that you can do in advance to prepare for the big day.

Have your infant car seat properly installed in your car

Installing an infant car seat is not as simple as it seems. We recommend that you learn to install the infant car seat and have it properly installed and inspected up to two months in advance of your due date. This way, if you wind up giving birth earlier than expected, you will have one less thing to worry about.

The police departments in both Jersey City and Hoboken will install and inspect your infant car seat for you free of charge. However, it is important that you know how to install it properly yourself as well in case you ever need to use another car or remove the base of the seat from your car for any reason. Please note that if you are planning on taking your newborn home from the hospital via car, you will not be allowed to do so unless you have a properly installed infant car seat.

Work with a Pampered Pregnancy Coach to develop a Childbirth Plan

Before you go into labor, it may be helpful to have a general idea about what is important to you when you are in labor. Who do you want in the delivery room with you? Are there any services or amenities you would like to arrange in advance to help make your childbirth even more special and unique? If you have children or even pets at your home, who will take care of them in your absence? Start thinking about what your needs are in advance of your due date.

Speak to one of our Pregnancy Coaches

Our Coaches can help you anticipate your needs and can even help to coordinate arrangements. To find out more about Pregnancy Coaches or to be connected to a Pregnancy Coach, please call 201.418.2529 or email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Take a Childbirth Education Class

At Integrated Women’s Health, we offer a wide variety of prenatal, childbirth and postpartum classes. Our classes can help educate and prepare you for the physical, emotional and logistical challenges and changes that accompany pregnancy, childbirth and having a new baby.

Checklist for the Hospital

The first thing that you should do if you suspect that you are in labor is to call your Obstetrician or Midwife. Once you have been admitted to the hospital, you or your partner may also wish to contact any other care providers that you have arranged to make your experience special, such as a Pampered Pregnancy Coach or Doula.

Packing List for Labor and Delivery and Postpartum

The hospital will provide you with almost everything that you need for your hospital stay. If you are interested in any upgraded services or amenities, you can either prearrange with a Pampered Pregnancy Coach or inquire at the Nursing Station when you arrive. The only items that are important to bring with you to the hospital when you check in are:

  • Insurance Card
  • Photo ID
  • Cord Blood Banking information and kit

Some additional items you may want to consider bringing with you for your own comfort and entertainment during your hospital stay are:

  • Eyeglasses and Contact Lenses (with saline solution and case)
  • List of any medications you are currently on (prearrange medication plan with your doctor)
  • List of people you wish to have contacted after the birth
  • Comfortable apparel to wear during your hospital stay such as pajamas/nightgowns, disposable underwear, slippers, shower shoes, socks, nursing bras or nursing tops, and/or a robe
  • Cell phone and charger
  • Camera/video camera with extra batteries, memory card and/or charger
  • Entertainment items such as books, computers, music, and/or portable DVD players with chargers and headphones
  • Baby book to record details of the birth and your newborn
  • If you have older child, some parents like to bring a picture of them and/or a gift “from the baby”

Make sure you have these items ready before you leave the hospital with your newborn:

  • Properly installed car seat (if traveling by car) or a stroller or carrier to safely transport your baby (if traveling by foot).
  • Weather appropriate apparel for your newborn, including an outfit, socks or booties (if the outfit doesn’t have feet), and a receiving blanket. If it is wintertime, you may also want to bring either a one-piece snowsuit (newborn size) or a warm stroller/car seat sack.
  • Weather appropriate outfit for you to go home in. Keep in mind that you may still look 5 -6 months pregnant and have some swelling and discomfort, so we recommend that you bring something that is comfortable and loose-fitting with a pair of flat, comfortable shoes.

We’ve got you covered!

If you forget to bring something to the hospital or if you want to make any special arrangements, we can help! Contact a Pampered Pregnancy Coach to help coordinate any of your needs.
