1. Spritz for Bits

The most popular answer! Spray to prevent stinging before and after you have that first post birth wee.

2. Medicated Cooling Pads

To calm, soothe and protect any burning, itching or discomfort.

3. Nipple Shields

If you're planning on breastfeeding take these nipple shields just in case your baby struggles to latch.

4. Peri Bottle

Avoid the dreaded hand-in-toilet situation! Pro-tip: add a drop of witch hazel for extra soothing relief.

5. Disposable Underwear

A C-section must have with a higher waistband that won’t roll down over your incision.

6. TENS Machine

Easy to use to take the edge off contractions, this one has adjustable settings so you can tailor it to you.

7. Dry Shampoo

Really good to have on hand in case you're unable to wash your hair. I love this one as it's really gentle.

8. Reusable Water Bottle

So you're not stuck using small hospital cups! This ceramic one will keep water cold for hours.

9. Lip Balm

Self explanatory! I love this one because it's super moisturising and a little goes a really long way.

10. Lounge Wear

These Tilbea joggers feature a seam free over the bump band for the ultimate comfy going home outfit.

11. Big Pants!

You can't beat M&S big pants and these ones are 100% cotton, you'll be wearing these for months to come!

12. Waterproof Slides

They double as slippers plus you can wear them in the shower.

13. Reusable Cotton Pads

Use with micellar water for easy and convenient face washing. These ones are 10cm wide so extra useful.

14. See-Through Wash Bag

So you can quickly grab what you need! Plus they can be easily wiped clean in case of spillages.

15. Handheld USB Fan

An essential for hot and stuffy hospitals! Rechargeable and with 3 speed settings, this will be a lifesaver.

16. Labelled Organiser Bags

Get seriously organised with these labelled zip lock bags. Sleek and functional, they will complete your hospital bag.
