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

What to take with you to the hospital

A month before your due date you should prepare a bag containing the things you will be taking with you to the hospital and a bag containing things for the baby which your partner will bring to the hospital before your return home. It is also a good idea to check with the maternity hospital what their recommendations are. Some hospitals prefer mothers to have as few of their own things as possible in the room, and for the partner to bring most things just before mother and baby are dismissed, while others advise you to bring your own slippers, etc.
