WHATS IN MY HOSPITAL BAG

With labor and delivery right around the corner we have been very busy every weekend preparing for our little one. One of the many items on my "to do" list has been getting my Hospital Bag/Labor & Delivery "tool kit" ready to go! 

Ive done loads of research, Mason thinks I am overly prepared but ive never done this before and you never know what to fully expect. If I have learned anything in pregancy its to expect the unexpected, so I would rather be that cray cray mama that is overly prepared. 

I will be going all natural so my hospital bag is tailored towards my natural birth. When looking at any reference make sure you are taking into account what your hospital does and does not provide so you know, they are all different!
