How Did You Transform Your Hospital Room To Make Giving Birth A Little Better?

Tell us the little things you did to feel like you were in your own personal oasis.

Packing up a hospital bag when you're getting ready to have a baby usually means including the essentials, like a print-out of your birth plan and some basic toiletries.

But that doesn't mean you can't throw in some things that'll make your hospital room feel like an oasis.

For instance, maybe you brought your own pillow and pillowcase, because you know nothing at the hospital will be as comfortable as yours.

Or perhaps you made a playlist of relaxing songs and sounds to ease your nerves and discomfort and brought a Bluetooth speaker to listen to it with.


Or maybe you brought a diffuser with an essential oil to make the room feel more like a spa*.
