You’re smart to realize that baby’s not the only one who’ll have needs after delivery… Here’s what you’ll need to take care of yourself.

[ ] Ice packs (in case of tearing during birth or swelling after)

[ ] 2-3 week supply of ultra absorbent sanitary pads

[ ] Panty liners

[ ] Hemorrhoid wipes and cream (can become necessary after labor, even if pregnancy was free of problems…sorry)
