*Call the hospital in advance and plot out the shortest route from your home (make sure your hubby has tried this route before because most likely he will be the driver)
*Check the hospital hours for visiting, the cafeteria schedule (not delicious, but he will be hungry), parking availability and other services available for the family.
*Make sure he packs his basic toiletries such as deodorant, toothbrush/paste, shampoo etc. There will be facilities for him to use to stay fresh.
*Have him bring his comfy clothes and pjs because most likely he will be sleeping over
* If you are preparing for a c-section, you might have to stay in the hospital for a few days so make sure your hubby packs enough clothing for the duration of the stay or worse comes to worse, he can always run home...
* Camera, video camera or whatever else you want to make sure you capture the moment
* Music for the labor and something to play it on
*Books, puzzles, newspapers, books to keep you occupied...
Hope these tips are helpful! Have a wonderful day:)
