The countdown has begun, and you can't wait to meet your new baby. To help you prepare for the big day and the trip to the hospital, we've created a handy checklist of necessities and nice-to-haves. Be sure you have your bag packed and ready to go a couple of weeks before your due date, as babies sometimes arrive earlier than expected.

Lotion or massage oil

Lollipops for a dry mouth

Paper fan

Soothing picture for focal point

Wooden back massager

Nightgown(s) that opens in the front for nursing

Robe and slippers
