    Hi All ILites(To be Moms),
    I remember the day when gynic gave me a checklist and bring accordingly as soon as I experience any pains. That list helped me out to carryout my needs,my new born needs and stay in hospital etc. I want to share that checklist with all our ILites. As soon as you cross 36 weeks, get ready and be prepared mentally and physically . So ladies get your bag ready and keep it in corner of Car. So once your delivery is over, you may not be able to move for your needs. So if you arrange them in a bag, your family members would help you out.
    I also would like to give you out some information whch you have to take care while joining for labour.
    If you are covered by your employer, before you join for delivery, get some information from hospital finance department like how much is the coverage, which insurance company, who is the contact person from hospital and insurance authorities, how much is the coverage, will the new born is also covered, what are the papers need to brought. Store the insurance person's contact number in your phone. If possible give him/her a call and inform the same that you are joining for labour. While discharging from hospital, there wont be any delay in billing.
    IF you are not covered, get in touch with your employer's finance department and get some information on Domicillairy Claims.
    While in hospital, dont forget to take bills for any single penny expense. Your or Your hubby can claim it.
    Here you go for the checklist!!!
    Your pregnancy File
    [FONT=verdana,arial,helvetica][SIZE=-1]3 Sanitary pads Packets(3*10=30)
    Cotton nighties or salwars(Atleast 3-4 sets)
    Feeding bras and panties(As many panties)
    One pair of cheppals
    Cloth to cover head and ears
    Recieving blanket for baby
    Draper for baby
    Soft towel
    Soft cotton cloth for his bed
    Napkin to cover his head
    4-5 pairs of baby dresses
    gloves and socks
    Two bedsheets
    Cotton Cloth pieces for cleaning baby's stool
    Diapers(atleast 2 packs)
    Apart from these -
    Admission forms/papers
    Baby name book
    Camera and/or video camera

    Change for the phone/phone card
