It’s your birth day! Here’s everything you need to pack in your hospital bag.
By Anna Bonet
When you’re getting close to your due date, it’s a good idea to start planning ahead by preparing what you’re going to take to the hospital when you go into labour. You should do this well in advance, because the last thing you want is for your water to break unexpectedly early, and to not be ready. This might cause a stressful situation – which isn’t ideal when you need to remain calm!
The best way to prepare is to pack one bag for mum, and one bag for baby. There are essentials for both, like a change of clothes for you and a full outfit for the newborn, but it’s also worth thinking about what possessions would make you feel at ease and comfortable during birth and labour.
While planning your hospital kit list will put your mind at ease, never underestimate the importance of packing your personal beauty essentials to help relax you, such as Elizabeth Arden Eight hour day and night cream to restore chapped and dry skin, or this lovely Scentered Aromatherapy Ultimate Relaxation Set to calm the nerves.
