Postpartum Care Kit Checklist and Essentials

Postpartum care package for moms

Giving birth is one of the best experiences you will ever have, but let’s face it things can get pretty messy and uncomfortable in the postpartum weeks that follow.

I’ve been taking care of postpartum moms for a while and this postpartum care package checklist is all you’ll need after delivery. I recommend all of these items to my patients – and we use these specific items at my hospital.
