What’s In My Hospital Bag? (Planned C-Section)

whats in my hospital bag planned c section

Lots of people requested I make a video on the contents of my hospital bag, so here it is – to be very honest, it’s not much different to the bag I took with me when I was having Angelica, which was supposed to be a natural birth. The clothes are looser, the knickers larger and I have more maternity pads, but apart from that the essentials seem to be the same. Stuff for mopping up (sorry), clothes for the baby and my trusty Kindle Paperwhite just in case I’m not so off my head on painkillers I can manage to read something.

Actually, I tell a lie: I have peppermint teabags (supposed to help with wind after c-section), Arnica tablets (for bruising), Nutri Mum bars (for helping with milk supply) (I’m sceptical, but we shall see) and hand sanitiser. Didn’t think of any of those things last time. Mainly because I wasn’t supposed to be having a section!

Anyway, full list below the video pane for quick reference.
