Emergency Information to Keep With You

Expect the unexpected. Now that you have another little life to worry about, it's even more important to prepare for any emergency, so keep copies of the following information with you at home, in your car, and in your bag or purse:

  • Your doctor's name and information, including any after-hours or emergency numbers

  • Your health insurance card and information (at least a photocopy)

  • Hospital name and address

  • Your Social Security Number and your partner's

  • Phone numbers of your partner, family members or friends

  • A copy of your prenatal blood work, including any special tests, and your baby's blood type after he or she is born

  • List any special health alerts that affect you (diabetes, high blood pressure, allergies, etc.)

  • Power of Attorney information: In case you become incapacitated, be sure you give permission or have a legal counselor who will act on your behalf to make any decisions regarding your health or the health of your child. This is especially important if there's an accident and your immediate family is unavailable to give consent for treatment.
