Pregnancy Checklist: Hospital and Home Preparation

This resource, created in partnership with the Society of Refugee Healthcare Providers, is for service providers to reference with newcomers who will be giving birth in the U.S. Service providers should encourage clients to pack their hospital bag a few weeks prior to their due date, to ensure they have the supplies they need ready during and after birth. This checklist is not a compliance tool for any specific grant or program; always reference your grant agreement and terms for specific program requirements. This checklist should serve as a starting point framework rather than a comprehensive list. It is meant to be customized to include any additional checklist items as necessary. In addition to this resource, you may find a checklist for pre- and post-natal care linked.
