After adding and subtracting things for weeks I have finally packed my hospital bag!
To be honest Im taking a suitcase…..let me explain. I literally can’t sleep anywhere without my pillow! So that takes up one side already! I was always travelling for work and even if it was 2-3 nights stopover I would take my suitcase.
So its coming with me to the hospital! Now I tend to be a tad over organised and there may be some things that I may not use, however I am a believer in better to have and not use it, than to miss it.
The other thing to take in account is, Im not sure what path my birth may take, so I have enough to last me for 5 nights ( just in case).
That being said, if you want to go light – there will always be friends and family that can bring you things to the hospital.
I’ll link below some of the chosen items that I bought, that I will also be using postpartum.
I will also be taking in a small bag for the birthing suite, this is made up of some of the below, but mainly a change of clothes ( For after birth and shower), oils and flameless candle for birthing, snacks, laptop for hypnosis tracks, phone and charger ( will be on flight mode).
