Update: I had a baby...

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you will know that I was pregnant with a little girl for the past 9 months. Well, I have gone quiet on here as I went into labour last Wednesday (20th of September), which I think is a pretty good excuse for not blogging personally!

What's in My Maternity/Hospital Bag?

As a first time mother to be, I have no idea what I am doing. However, after a lot of googling and watching Youtube videos, me and my mother have packed my hospital bag. I am due on the 22nd of September so thought we should probably get on top of it. I thought I would write a post on it to help prompt any other mothers in regards to ideas of what to take, and see if anyone has any useful hints and tips to leave in the comments! It's definitely difficult to know what exactly you need as everyone has such different experiences. I could be in and out in the same day, in which case I have majorly overpacked, or I could be in for a week. A lot of people have the minimum in one bag and a back up bag at home to be retrieved if needed, but me and my mother decided we are going to overpack and take one bag for the baby and one bag for myself. I've filmed a video showing all the individual items which you can find below, but I thought having a visible list will also be useful!
