All your pregnancy questions answered

How to prepare for your labour?

  • When should you report to the hospital?

If you have any of the following you should get ready for your admission at the hospital:

  1. Labour contractions-You will start to feel uterine contractions as mildly painful tightening of your uterus. The contractions should be occurring at regular intervals of say 20 minutes, or 15 minutes etc

  2. Show- This is a mucoid blood stained vaginal discharge that you will see at the onset of labour

  3. Leak-A gush of fluid [watery often clear fluid], often larger in quantity than just vaginal discharge is a sign that your membranes [water bag] has ruptured

  4. Decreased baby movements-Although this is not a sign of labour, if you do feel reduced movements of your baby you must report to your doctor immediately. He will then test, usually a NST, and see if your baby is doing well or not

  • What should you keep packed and ready in the last month of your pregnancy?

You should probably pack and keep a bag ready to take with you when you go into labour. The bag should contain the following:

  1. Comfortable clothes [including undergarments] for you to wear after your delivery

  2. 2 packs of large sanitary pads

  3. Some clothes for your baby, including diapers, clothes and most important some form of cap to cover your babies head

  4. Some reading material

  5. A compact music system if you want your own music during and after your delivery

  6. Your mobile phone so that you could be in touch from your bedside

  7. You personal toiletries such as towels, napkins, soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, makeup etc

  8. Bras that are designed for nursing

  9. Toiletries for your baby such as soap, oil, powder etc

  • Blood donor

You must try to locate a friend/relative who has the same blood group as you and see that they are contactable at the time that you may go into labour. If blood is required blood banks do not always have stocks of all groups and this may become life saving. This is particularly important if you have a Rh negative or otherwise rare blood group.

  • Transport to the hospital

Make sure that some form of transport is available for you to get to the hospital. If a car is unavailable keep a list of four or five taxi company telephone numbers readily available.
