Are you giving birth anytime soon? It’s time to have that maternity bag packed! It should contain all the essentials that you will need during your stay at the hospital. We know it can be overwhelming with all the information out there, especially when you’re about to give birth for the first time. But we are here to help you prepare for it!
Packing your maternity bag may sound like a daunting task, but it actually isn’t, especially if you plan ahead of time. There might be things that you wouldn’t expect to use – as giving birth is quite unpredictable – so don’t wait until the last minute to start preparing.
Around two months before your due date would be good time to begin packing. If this is not possible, give yourself one month or even as late as two weeks.
Just don’t wait until you’re starting to feel contractions! If you’re already rushing to go to the hospital, you will be packing stuff at random, which will likely result to you forgetting a lot of important things. Trust us, you don’t want that! Going into labor is hard enough – the last thing you need is another matter to worry about.
