What do I need to bring to the hospital the day of my C-section?

You’ll stay in the hospital for two to four days following your cesarean section, so you’ll need to pack for that. A checklist is below.

  • Your nightgown, robe, and slippers 
  • Nursing bras and supportive postpartum underwear 
  • Toiletries
  • Dry shampoo (in case you can’t shower right away), hairbrush, hair ties 
  • Contact lenses or glasses
  • A comfortable pillow
  • Clothes for your stay, including elastic-waist pants or comfortable dresses
  • Headphones
