Maternity bag: 10 things you didn't know you needed 

Finding a list of things to put in your maternity bag ready for the birth of your baby is easy, but what about those extras that you might not have thought of?

The standard maternity bag checklist consists of:

•    Your maternity notes and (if you have one) your birth plan
•    Socks
•    Snacks and drinks
•    One set of clothes for the baby and new born diapers if you need them
•    Any prescription drugs which you take
•    Nursing bras and nipple cream
•    Proper maternity napkins (like sanitary napkins but softer)
•    Toiletries bag (toothbrush, toothpaste, face flannel, soap, shower gel, moisturizer etc)
•    Towels
•    Baby car seat - not for the bag but an essential nonetheless.

But as we know, when it comes to having babies it's best to expect the unexpected!

So here's our guide to the 10 things you may not have thought of to pack in your maternity bag for an all-round better birthing experience.
