Sorry if this is a dumb question.. but im 8 weeks to go so starting to gather the items I need for my hospital bag.. Ive made a list but holy moly, looks like so much!! Going to need a suitcase! Ive been told i cant over prepare by the midwife as due to the current circumstances with covid my partner wont be allowed to pop home to grab anything we have forgotten and come back.
this is my first baby so dont know if im over thinking everything, just want to make sure im prepared!
So i guess firstly, i was wondering what type of bags you took? did any of you take a full on suitcase? will i look crazy if i turn up with one haha? or is it normal? Or did you have multiple bags, one for labour/one for baby etc?
Secondly, here is the list ive made, let me know if theres anything ive forgotten or wont need (baring in mind we cant go back to get anything, been told its apparently a 'once your in, your in..situation)
Hospital File / birth plan
change of clothes
water spray / fan
tablet/tablet charger or laptop?
toothbrush and paste
inhalers / paracetemol
food and drinks
list of important phone numbers
socks or booties
Basically, any advice you can give me on how to prepare for the labour, even if its not involving the hospital bag, would be really appreciated.
Thank you :)
The Hospital Bag/s
