With my due date less than a month away… it’s time to get my hospital bag packed… even though I’m packing this second time around, it was great to go back to basics.
TOP TIP – get your partner to pack the bag… that way, when you’re in labour… they know WHERE things are and WHAT you have intended to pack!
You’ll see I’ve also tagged some of MY favourite products… just to jazz it up a little
