Your beautiful bun in the oven is almost here. Yay! While you can still muster up some energy, let's get your hospital bag sorted!

Once your bag is packed, it's time to relax! Picture how amazing it will be when you finally get to meet him or her! Holding them in your arms for the first time is so so amazing! Let's get to it!




This list is a collaborative effort from many mum-to-be's! So rest-assure, you'll have everything that you need.



1. Pretty beautiful checklist directly HERE or;

2. Printer-friendly plain checklist HERE.



Want someone else to pack your bag for you?


Be sure to check out the amazing DONE-FOR-YOU Aussie service below, that packs your hospital bag for you! Many mums like to bring a sports/duffle bag or a carry on suitcase to the hospital.



Have you heard? Mums have been RAVING about the ready packed bags from Little Bundles of Joy! That's right they are pre-packed bags ready for labour and recover! (Note: They only missed a few things off our list too).


How wonderful is this service!? If you're absolutely pooped or don't want the stress of having to pack, then this could be the perfect option for you.


Have you read the checklist? Did you find anything missing? If you did, please please give me a shout, so I can add it to the list!

Just leave me a comment below and I"ll get on it!


You've totally got this Mumma!

All the best, Jess xx

Hey there!

I'm Jess

I'm a small-town Camperdown mum and photographer with big dreams! I didn't always have this business. I've been seeking a creative outlet since finishing school and I found photography when my first-born Bonnie was born.


I'm obsessed with in-door plants, candles and crispy pork cracking with apple sauce.


Currently, I'm probably sipping a mocha or kombucha and dreaming of ways how I can help my clients decorate their homes with even more drool-worthy world-class products featuring their family.

Deciding to photograph your family is one choice in your family's experiences that endures. This is your story. Make no compromises with your memories.
