Sarah shared her three bags and then her husband was packing his own so one more still to go. So what were in those three all important bags. One was hers, one was babies and one was for the room! Yes for the room decor itself. And I’m not talking a shopping trip from Ikea but things to go in a room that you like, make you feel good. Think how to make the hospital more like your home than a hospital room.
There was a diffuser, essential oils, led candles, room sprays, pillow spray. You name there’s a spray for everything. Even one for moms ‘bits’ down there after! So this third bag is basically a bag of happiness!
