My Hospital Bag Pre- Packed Hospital Bag

When the time came to pack my hospital bag I didn't have a clue what I would need to pack, Thomas is my first baby so I didn't have a clue what I would need to take with me, I didn't know what labour would be like so I didn't know what essentials I would have to take with me. I spent quite a while browsing the internet trying to find lists of what to pack and then I spent even longer shopping for all of the things I needed to pack in our bags.

A lady called Karen Snyder came up with the idea of pre-packed hospital bags after spending lots of time writing lists of what she would need to pack in her hospital bag and helping friends to make lists of what they would need in their bags to see them through labour and their hospital stay she came up with this brilliant idea. 

I envisioned the bag containing all the necessities a mum needs for herself and the baby during labour and post labour along with some special treats, all packed in a stylish bag that can continue to be used as an overnight bag. The aim of myHospitalBag is to make your 48 hour stay in hospital more comfortable. The bag contains 35 products including a toilet bag with: miniature shower gel, shampoo, deodorant, lipsalve, hairbands, shower cap, toothbrush, toothpaste and lipsalve. The bag also includes comfortable knickers, maternity sanitary towels, breastpads, facial wipes and antibacterial hand gel, along with flip flops, bed socks, a laundry bag and a pocket pad and pen. To help aid recovery there is a small bottle of Arnica pills which help bruising and discomfort after birth. This stylish bag is not just for mums. I have included essential items for the newborn such as babygrows, vests, hats, mitts and muslin squares all in neutral white, newborn nappies, nappy bags, wipes, cotton wool, disposable changing mat and Sudocrem. The bag is even big enough to ensure that you have space to add a few home comforts. If you are interested in buying one, the cost is £85 including delivery which is cheaper and more convenient than buying it all separately.

I love this it contains everything you need and like Karen says it even has enough space to take some of your own things like magazines to flick through and some snacks to keep you going. The extra space is also good if you know you are going in for a c-section and you will be staying an extra day or so you will need an extra few bits.

The bags come in all different colours please visit the site for more information
