I can't believe the time has come to share with you what I have in my hospital bag! This has been the fastest pregnancy ever and usually at this point everything seems to slow down a little as your impending due date nears, it almost seems to get further from reach. Not this time! I'm now 37 weeks which means I'm full term, although I'd be quite happy if he cooked away a little longer so I can make sure I'm super prepared, my bags are packed and waiting so without further ado I will show you a breakdown of what you need to take into hospital for labour and baby.

I will be packing my items for baby & labour in my KeriKit 'Joy' changing backpack in black. You can use the code MAMAKERIKIT10 for 10% off on across their full range of real leather changing bags.


in fairness, there isn't a whole lot you need to take in for you little cherub. As I mentioned in my video, you really don't have to take in your own nappies and wipes but I just prefer to use my own things. I've packed :

3x vests
2x sleep suits (magnet mouse sleep suit can be purchased HERE!)
Coming home outfit 
Hat (MiLoves hat can be purchased HERE!)
Water wipes


For labour I liked to wear a soft large t-shirt style nightie. I picked mine up from Primark along with high rise, seam free, incredibly glamorous pants and some socks because your tootsies get pretty chilly in labour! I'd say having your hair tied back is a must so make sure you can take something like a hair clip that is foolproof for your partner to make an attempt at putting it up for you in case you're otherwise preoccupied - chances are you will be! A water bottle with a straw is sooooo useful. You can take little sips at a time while you partner holds the bottle for you.

Pants (think Bridget Jones style)
Soft bra/nursing bra if you're planning to breastfeed
Hair bobbles
Hair clip
Lip balm
Maternity pad
Breast pads
Cooling spray (optional)
Chewing gum/mints
Nipple cream
Lip balm
Bottle for water

Recovery & Going Home

After you've given birth you'll just want to live in Pj's or something similarly as comfortable. I've packed 2 sets of pyjamas which is plenty. Remember your partner has to go home each evening so if you're unexpectedly asked to stay in hospital they can collect you some more and bring them in on their next visit. I'll list all of the toiletries and other items you need below. In terms of a coming home outfit make sure it's something comfortable. I'm taking a loose fitting dress and stretchy tights with boots and my coat.

2x Pj's
2x pants
2x bras
2x socks
light dressing gown
maternity pads
breast pads
camera & charger
make up bag

Face wipes
Bump cream - (you can purchase Bloom & Blossom award winning anti-stretchmark cream HERE!)
Shaving foam
Dry Shampoo
Body wash
Shower puff
