To be honest in my own experience there's not much you actually NEED . A full tank of fuel , wallet and a charged up phone and even the phone isn't that essential as there are pay phones in hospitals. When mine was born I was there and concentrating onthat occupies the mind . Even in the nothing happening wait a bit longer times i perhaps could have used a small book but to be fair the walls are covered with posters along with a few old magazines and people to talk to. Water is available although you could always take a bottle and as for food I didn't seem to notice the not eating in all the excitement . Fuel in the car and money for parking speak for themselves and my mobile was useful for calling my parents who were waiting up in the small hours to hear they'd become grandparents.Yorkshire Andy wrote:Well in about a month and a bit im going to be a dad

Going off topic a little , many years ago my girlfriend at the time was taken to A&E in an ambulance and I followed behind. The ambulance pulled right up to the doors while I parked up. I then ran holding my girlfriend's handbag towards A&E . There I almost bumped straight into a police officer. He looked at me straight faced and realising I probably looked like a bag snatcher and said something like "ah this must look bad" . He remained straight faced for a moment , just long enough for me to start thinking , then started laughing and gesturing for me to carry on inside,
