FREE UK DELIVERY -2-3 WORKING DAYS
As a first time mum-to- be, I had no idea what I needed in my hospital bag. There were no pre-packed maternity bags that had all the essentials, for a reasonable price. So I decided to put together a pre- packed luxury maternity bag.
After having a baby that was born early and unexpectedly had to stay in hospital for more than a few days, I didn’t have enough toiletries and did forget a few nitty gritty things due to having to pack the hospital bag very quickly! I wished there was a pre packed maternity bag which had all the essentials for a few nights stay!

“Whether you’re planning to have your baby at home, in hospital or at a midwifery unit, you should get a few things ready at least 2 weeks before your due date.
If you’re planning to give birth in a hospital or midwifery unit, your midwife will probably give suggestions of what you’ll need to pack. This will include things for you and your new baby.
If you’re planning to give birth at home, discuss your plans and what you need to prepare with your midwife. Think about where in your home you want to give birth.
You’re likely to need:
clean bed clothes and towels
clothes (including a hat) and nappies for the baby
a couple of packets of super-absorbent sanitary or maternity pads
Even if you’re planning to have your baby at home, you should pack some things in case you need to go into hospital at any point.
Wherever you’re planning to give birth, keep a list of important numbers in your handbag or near the phone.
You need to include:
your hospital, midwife or doula’s phone number
your partner or birth partner’s phone number
your own hospital reference number, which is on your card or notes (you’ll be asked for this when you phone in)
If you do not have a phone, ask neighbours if you can use theirs when the time comes.
Some hospitals and midwifery units allow you to use your mobile phone. Check with your midwife.
If you cannot use your mobile phone, make sure you have a phonecard or change for a payphone.
When you come home, you will not want to do much more than rest and care for your baby, so do as much planning as you can in advance.
Stock up on basics, such as toilet paper, sanitary towels and nappies.
If you have a freezer, cook some meals in advance and freeze them.

You should plan how you’ll get to the hospital or midwifery unit because you might need to go there at any time of the day or night.
If you’re planning to go by car, make sure it’s running well and that there’s always enough petrol in the tank.
If someone else has said they’ll take you, make an alternative arrangement just in case they’re not available.
If you have not got a car, you could call a taxi. You should check ahead of time that your local taxi firm takes women in labour.
Some maternity units may be able to arrange for an ambulance to pick you up. You should check with yours if they offer this service.”
