Women have been giving birth for thousands of years and yet the idea of packing a hospital bag for the big day can send us into disarray. This is all completely normal, but do remember if you forget something, what you and your baby really need....is you and your boobs!!!
Here is a simple list from the The Bshirt of what we think you will need. It's just the basics ladies. And it's everything that we fit into that small duffel bag in the video. If we can keep it simple, you can too xoxoxo
In your make up bag, we recommend...
- Tooth paste and tooth brush
- Natural deodorant (aluminium free)
- Travel size shampoo & conditioner
- Cleansing water or a bar of soap

For your baby, we recommend....

Of course there'll be a few other things you think of, like your phone/camera and some clothes to leave the hospital in. But other than that - that's pretty much it!!
Best of luck to you on the big day!!
