    What to bring

    To make your stay at the Family Birth Center as pleasant as possible, we've created the following list of items to bring with you, along with a few tips and suggestions.

    • Baby Clothing: We will supply all the diapers, blankets, and supplies for changing and cleaning your baby during your stay in the hospital. Plan to bring clothing and a blanket for taking your baby home.
    • Camera: Remember to bring back up batteries or a charger, as well as a memory card!
    • Car seat: You will need to have an approved car seat to transport your baby home. Call your local Highway Patrol office. You may also search for an inspection station at The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Inspection Station Locator.
    • Cell phones and laptops are allowed in the room. In fact, free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hospital campus. Landline phones are also available in each room.
    • Clothing: Comfortable clothing for labor, as well as for your postpartum stay. Hospital gowns are available as well.
