Everything you may need during childbirth is right here, including access to a Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) should the circumstances call for it.

What to Pack in Your Hospital Bag

When it comes to packing your hospital bag, it's best to have things ready around a month before your due date. After all, only around five percent of babies are born on their actual due date. Packing early gives you enough time to prepare for the unexpected, but should things move faster than planned, you can rest assured knowing the Nest will provide you with all essential supplies for you and your newborn.

The Nest at Baptist Health System provides gowns, socks, underwear and postpartum supplies including pads, ice packs, pericare supplies, wraps and more. We'll also provide diapers, wipes, blankets, hats and bathing supplies for your new arrival.

OB Hospitalists

Babies don't always stick to the plan. If your little one decides he or she is ready to arrive at 3:00AM, you may be wondering if your doctor will even be awake to help you deliver. That's why at the Nest at Baptist Health System, we have 24/7 OB hospitalists on site to give you peace of mind. Always on-site, our OB Hospitalists support your doctor or midwife and your birth plan, providing care when your physician is not immediately available.
