Maternity Hospital Bag Checklist: What You Need To Take

As a new or expectant mum, you may be feeling overwhelmed with all the things you need to take care of both before and after giving birth. But one thing that’s often overlooked is skin care. Taking proper care of your skin during pregnancy is essential for both your comfort and wellbeing, as well as for bonding with your baby once they’re born. So here is a helpful guide to pregnancy skincare, with tips on what to include in your maternity hospital bag…

The Essentials 

Hospitals will provide you with basic items such as bed linens and towels, but there are some essentials that should be in every mum-to-be hospital bag. Make sure to pack comfortable clothes (think loose-fitting sleepwear), flip flops or slippers, a robe, and plenty of underwear. You may also want to consider packing nursing bras if you plan to breastfeed your baby. Additionally, don’t forget phone chargers and headphones so that you can watch movies or listen to music during labour and recovery.
