36 – Packing your hospital bag for labour and birth with Luka and Kate

Following on from our episode about labour and birth prep, in today’s BONUS episode we discuss all things packing your hospital bag from a midwife’s perspective… and kate has a big realisation that she is incredibly disorganised for this baby’s arrival!

For those who are tuning in for the first time, a little about us…

  • Luka McCabe – founder of Boob to Food, author of Milk to Meals, registered nurse and midwife, as well as mum of 3

  • Kate Holm – naturopath, nutritionist,  clinical director of Boob to Food and mum of 2 (with a third very soon to arrive!)

In this podcast we discuss

  • Why it is helpful to pack a hospital bag and when you might like to start thinking about it

  • Packing a bag for labour, postpartum, baby and also your support person

  • What to pack, the absolute musts and some nice to haves

  • Why having a bag packed is still relevant, even if you’re planning a home birth

  • and so much more…
