3. Housecoat

If you're thinking about what to pack for the hospital when having a baby, some simple items are hugely important, but they might slip your mind. Usually, as labor progresses, you become less and less worried about your personal modesty and more about getting the baby out - no matter who sees.

However, before that moment comes, and after it's all over, you're going to want to cover your behind since those hospital gowns tend to not leave much to the imagination. If you want to walk the halls during early labor, or get up to go the the restroom in a room crowded with guests, you will surely want your housecoat handy. (Unless, of course, you choose to take the next item in the list...)
