    I think they do provide towels but they aren't very soft so you might want to take a nice soft one for you and baby :)

    On the list we were given by my midwife it said to pack a towel, so it might be worth checking with your hospital as some places seem to do it differently.

    The list looks good though, I was excited about packing mine as well.

    I know ours provide towels but they are quite like sandpaper hehe, made a point of giving them a rub while I was in there monday lol. SO I have a dark towel/bath sheet for myself and a towel for my hair too, need to hunt out one for bubs though

    What to Expect When You're Expecting asks us to pack coloured towels, so that we don't have ours confused with the hospital towels. :hugs:

    Maybe take some change for parking and vending machines?
    A flannel so you can wet it and wipe down your forehead in labour.
    A hand held battery fan? Some hospitals don't allow the plug in ones according to my NCT lady.
    Hair ties if you have long hair.

    Can't think of any more :)
