What To Bring

As you get closer to your due date there are lots of things to arrange. It makes sense to have a bag packed and ready to go. You'll probably want to pack two bags, one with things you want for the actual labour and one with everything you'll need afterwards - including something for your new baby to wear going home!
Bag one (labour)

  • mineral water spray or a plant spray with a fine nozzle. Put it in a fridge (if possible) to keep it cool
  • two facecloths for cooling your face and skin
  • music player
  • unscented oil or a light body lotion for massage
  • thermal pack (the sort you can heat in a microwave for taking with you on cold outings - it stays warm for hours). It can be wrapped in a towel and used as a warm compress to relieve aches in the back or in the legs
  • old nightdress (front opening for easy breastfeeding) or old T-shirt, dressing-gown (robe) and sandals or slippers
  • hairbrush, and hair bands for long hair
  • lip balm
  • wash bag with toiletries
  • toothbrush and toothpaste
  • camera
  • drinks and snacks for you and your partner.

    Bag two (after the birth)

  • two nightdresses (front opening for easy breastfeeding)
  • easy-to-wear day clothes (like a tracksuit - again with a front-opening top for easy breastfeeding)
  • underwear, including comfy full briefs (to hold maternity pads), and nursing bras - you may find disposable pants useful for the first few days
  • towels
  • maternity pads or night-time sanitary pads
  • breast pads
  • tissues
  • unscented toiletries and cosmetics
  • nappies for the baby
  • vests and sleep suits for the baby
  • cotton wool balls and nappy cream
  • fruit juice/mineral water
  • healthy snacks.
