    It is really important that you should keep breath mints with you when you will spend your time at the hospital. You may have to keep yourself up all night and for that purpose, you may also consume too much coffee or tea in the meantime. As a result, whenever you will go close to your partner, she will focus more on your bad breath, rather than her ‘hee hee hee’ ones. Therefore, breath mints will come handy at that time.

    Pack some comfortable clothes. Here, you should be very careful while choosing the comfortable clothes, as they should also be good enough, which you should not mind seeing for the next 50 years. You will never want to throw away your newborn photos. Therefore, wear clothes that look best on you, even after decades.

    Pack some snack, which you can consume, especially when you feel hungry late at night. Whatever you choose, make sure it is mild and does not smell bad. You should avoid taking sour cream, onion chips and similar things with you.

    You should also take some over-the-counter medicines with you. You will not be able to get a medicine from the hospital, until you go for a proper check-up.  Therefore, it will become really difficult for you if your head starts aching late at night and you do not have any medicine with you.
