How do I find the birthing clinic that's right for me?

First and foremost, it is important that you as a mother, but also your partner, feel secure and that you're in good hands for the birth of your child. Naturally, this depends on your choice of clinic. We have put together a list of questions so that you can set your own priorities and plan for known risks — thereby making it easier to choose your clinic:

Due date — What do I need in my hospital bag?

It's almost time — your due date is getting closer and closer. So that you and your partner don't forget anything in all the excitement, you should think about what you need in your hospital bag well in advance. We have prepared a checklist to assist you. You should have this gear in a bag ready to grab from the seventh month, just in case the baby decides that they want to arrive a little earlier.

Our tip: Keep your bag where it is clearly visible and easy to grab, just in case the baby gets any funny ideas about surprising everyone early. More importantly, remember to tell the dad-to-be where you put it!

What do I need for my first trip with my baby?

Out and about with your baby: have you thought of everything? Even a short outing like a simple afternoon visit with relatives requires careful planning. Something to drink, the next meal, nappies, toys, do you have everything? If you're going further afield, check that your passports and insurance are still valid! We have compiled a short travel checklist to help so that you lack nothing on your next holiday or family outing.
