For the past couple of days I’ve been researching/preparing what should be in my hospital bag and that my birth plan covered everything I had learned in the antenatal classes. FINALLY everything is ready for baby’s arrival ^_^
I must admit that being a first time mum it’s quite tedious preparing the hospital bag and setting a birth plan even with all the classes taken, and can only imagine what it could be like for those who have the slightest idea. Through the classes and my own research I have been constantly discovering new things that can be added in my bag and birth plan, so what I decided to do was write everything down in my notes and then personalised it by only selecting what I think I would need. Remember there are things that are necessary to have and things that you will want to make you feel relaxed and at ease during the labour.
For mums who need a little help getting started I have included my own hospital bag checklist and birth plan (water birth). Click on the links below. I hope and pray for a quick and safe delivery however in both hospital bag checklist and birth plan I have considered all possible outcomes and what would be needed.
If I have left anything out or there is any advice you could give me please feel free to drop me a comment or email, as I would be grateful xoxo
