Items to prepare in case of emergency
Pack in one bag 2- to 3-daysf worth of the items listed below plus other things you need so you can grab and go when necessary. It also might be a good idea to pack things light enough for small children to carry in your childfs backpack. The Maternal and Child Health Handbook contains information regarding you and your baby during your pregnancy and postpartum period, and aids in the understanding of your health condition. When evacuating, always keep your Maternal and Child Health Handbook and your patient ID card with you along with your emergency items. If you lose your handbook, go to the city hall or a health center as soon as possible for reissuance. It may help to include among your emergency items something you are fond of, something your baby is fond of ( for example, pacifiers), and something that helps you relax.


Max. weight that most pregnant women can carry is approx. 5 kg. Try carrying the bag after you finish packing.
