What Not to Do | Labor & Delivery | Parents


A lot of my patients ask me if they should
do anything right before they go to the hospital. And really, as long as your bag is packed,
you’re kind of ready. You don’t have to shave or wax. Some people ask me if they have to
have an enema. And you certainly do not have to do that. Sometimes, I advice to just eat
something really light because once you get to the hospital, most of the time, you’re
not supposed to eat anything. You can definitely wait at home until your contractions are at
least five minutes apart. So, if they are still very irregular, you should enjoy being
at home as long as you can. And you can always call your doctor if you’re not sure exactly
when to go in. So, overall, don’t worry. Your doctors and nurses are gonna take great care
of you. They can answer all your questions. So, just relax, breathe. You can do it.
