Great Baby Expectations

>> Feb 8, 2012

When a woman finds out that she is expecting a baby, the countdown for the new arrival may seem like forever. There is much to prepare for in that time however, such as setting up a nursery, taking birthing class or packing the infamous hospital bag. With a healthy attitude and a by taking advantage of the few preparation tips below, any expectant mom can go into the big day feeling excited and ready for delivery.

It’s a good idea to pack your hospital stay bag before the 36-week mark, and making a checklist of items to include will help you stay organized. Since the hospital typically only provides a gown for mom, extra clothes are a must, especially for when visitors arrive. Other toiletries such as personal care items and shoes or slippers for walking around should also go in this bag. Many of the baby needs should be provided by the hospital including clothes and diapers, however, packing an extra outfit for the little one to come home in is a good idea. And don’t forget, in order for the little one to come home with you it’s necessary to havea properly installed car seat!

Making important arrangements like taking leave from work, childcare for your other children, if necessary, and pet care too for the time you’ll be in the hospital should also be done well before the 36-week mark. Meal planning can become challenging after returning home; making double portions of food before baby arrives and then freezing it for later can help overcome this.

It’s common for mom-to-be to have an idea of how the delivery room atmosphere should be to help her stay relaxed. Creating a birth plan in advance can help moms achieve their ideal delivery day experience. For example, if you’d like to have music to listen to or family and friends present, note it in your birth plan. There are many pain management choices during labor; your birth plan is an excellent place to outline what you would like to use. It is also a great place to outline extra considerations such as if you’d like to collect your baby’s umbilical cord blood for cordbloodbanking. The umbilical cord blood contains non-controversial stem cells that can potentially be used in a future stem cell treatment, if necessary.

Once your baby has arrived, many new questions arise such as breastfeeding and vaccinations for the baby. If mom chooses to breastfeed, having a nursing pillow at the hospital to elevate the baby will be helpful. Lactation consultants are typically available at the hospital to answer questions and provide support to mom during her stay. Mom can also contact LaLecheLeague for help or support with breastfeeding.

Having a baby is an exciting time in an expecting mother’s life. With some simple preparation, you can enter the delivery room feeling calm and ready for the next stage of motherhood.
