WHAT SHOULD I PACK IN MY MATERNITY HOSPITAL BAG?

I’m busy putting together my maternity hospital bag so thought I would add the bits and pieces I’m taking to this page!

New items are arriving every day and I’m trying and testing whatever I can.

If they make the cut you’ll see them here.

Please bear with me as I’ll be uploading new items as I go.

This list is based on the assumption that I’ll only be staying in for one day!!!!

Tip: Scroll to the bottom of the page for my list that you can copy and paste.

Totally not my style but I need something to give birth in that won’t make me hot! This is perfect as I’ll be available for checks, blood stains won’t show and it’s cheap enough to throw away after if I wish! I’ve bought two so that I can wear a clean one after having a shower.

I’ve been advised by many people to take a pair of flip flops to wear in the shower at the hospital. Apparently they can sometimes be a bit grim. That said, I was there the other day and the room we were in was immaculate. Still, I’m not going to take any chances!
