I had my hospital bag ready by week 32 of my pregnancy. Why so early? I had a gut feeling that my baby wanted to come early and also because of some of the health concerns I was dealing with, it was better to be prepared than not. As it turned out, I was hospitalised at week 36 in preparation for early delivery.
The super organised me had gone through various websites and put together a bag full of everything I would need. In reality, I only used half of the things I packed and ended up buying things I didn’t know I would need at the very last minute.
To make your life a little easier, I have made a list of items you may want in your bag. Of course, every woman is different. So, add in the things you know you will definitely need and remove those you deem unnecessary. If anyone is interested, have a look at the NHS Birth plan or one by The Bump.
