With the right advice, pregnancy and motherhood can be a carefree experience.


Prospective parents need to make sure everything is ready for the arrival of their baby by buying or borrowing equipment, clothes and a host of small items that experienced parents quickly forget about. In order to help you, we have prepared some handy lists of the things that you will need to take with you to the hospital and those that you should get ready at home.

When it comes to equipment and other items, try asking friends and relatives who have already had children. You may be able to buy or borrow some items from them. This will keep the costs down and the environment will also be grateful, since babies rarely wear things out – they usually outgrow them long before that.
