What's in My Hospital Bag?

Just in case you are new here, I am a Kandang Kerbau Hospital (KKH) Cesarean patient. The reason I want to state this because I do not know what other hospitals do and do not provide and I can only speak for my experience in KKH. On top of that, Jhon and I had chose to be in the A1 ward for comfort and privacy and not sure if there's a difference in what they provide compared to other wards.

The list is created before I was admitted and I will put a side note if it was actually necessary or not after my admission. Hospital stays can be 2 to 3 days depending if it's a vaginal delivery or C-section. I like to pack a little extra in terms of undergarments and/or clothes because I rather over pack with them than not. As for our bags, I just brought my usual old travel Addidas duffel bag and Jhon's backpack. I guess you may bring a mini luggage bag but I find it too much lah. Whatever floats your boat.
