The following supplies should be washed and dried. Run these items through an extra dryer cycle and immediately place them in plastic bags, and close tightly. Label the bags. They will be opened as needed.
When you feel pretty certain that you are in labor, make up your bed with the clean sheets that you have for AFTER the birth. Place the plastic sheet/waterproof mattress cover over them. Place the BIRTH sheets on top of the plastic sheet/waterproof mattress cover).
Put your AFTER pillowcases on the pillows, cover the pillows with a plastic trash bag and then put on the birth pillowcases. Keep the top sheet folded down so you don’t accidentally birth on it.
After the birth, your bed will be stripped of the top set of sheets so you have clean sheets, and the room will be cleaned up before our departure.
