I stayed at Mt Alvernia. There will be basic toiletries, hair dryer and hospital gowns daily. Other than your own going home clothes and baby going home clothes and swaddle, you may want to consider the following: 1. nipple cream 2. extra disposable underwear / nursing bra 3. extra maternity pads 4. your breast pump (so that you can ask the nurse or lactation consultant on how to use it properly). 5. instant cold perineal pads (for natural delivery) 6. a postpartum belly support e.g. Belly Bandit or a belly binder (for belly support when you are walking) 7. Charger for phone 8. Perineal antiseptic spray and perineal spray bottle for pain relief (for natural delivery)

I brought too many stuff for my delivery. You really only need a set of clothes for yourself and baby (incl. swaddle, booties, mittens) to go home, skincare, toiletries, mobile phone charger, NRIC. Delivered at kkh - disposable underwear, maternity pads and diapers are provided (well, paid for).

you only need a set of clothing for you & baby during discharge. hospital provides pampers, wet wipes, disposable panties & pads. you can bring yours too in case you are not comfortable with the ones hospital provides :)
