Kattia’s Mommy Diary: The “Go Bag”

oribe travel


  • Your favorite lip balm. I like to have two choices – one for pure moisture and the other for scent.
  • Massage oil or lotion, if you would like to be massaged during labor. (That will be your hubby’s job!) Choose a scent that relaxes you.
  • The basics: deodorant, toothbrush and toothpaste.
  • Arnika – to start taking after labor to help with bruising, muscular damage, or inflammation.
  • You should bring a shampoo and conditioner, plus a comb or brush for detangling. Using a leave-in conditioning product will also help keep your hair under control.
  • If you don’t plan on washing your hair, pack a dry shampoo like Oribe’s Dry spray. I’m so happy that Oribe just came out with their full collection of travel and purse sizes! At this point, I really would like to be a super diva and have a Butterfly Studio pro come by and blow out my hair – and a little makeup touch-up would be nice! However, I will manage on my own using my Oribe products.
  • Hair bands – for pulling up your hair into a ponytail during labor. Remember, you are going to have the worst workout of your life, so having your hair away from the face will feel better.
  • A headband, ponytail holder, and some pins will come in handy after you wash your hair to help you style quickly before photos and visitors. I’m going with a high messy bun. It’s super easy to do and gives me a little height so I don’t feel so round in the face.
  • Makeup bag. If you plan on taking photos, think natural and pretty. Bring a foundation or tinted moisturizer, a pretty natural blush (I love the dual bronzer and blush by Nars), and a light lip gloss with some tint to give you a little color. Lastly, pack a mascara to give your eye area a bright lift.
