What's in my box

Maternity pads * 10

Why We Chose It
Whichever type of birth you have, you will need heavy-duty sanitary towels for the first few days after birth. We don’t think the standard ones are enough, so after reviewing more pads that you could image, we have selected Medicare maternity pads for your box.

They are specially designed for use after birth with extra length and width to prevent leakage as well as a uniquely high absorption capacity.

An absolute must have for your delivery day.

Product Description

    • Layer 1: 100% pure cellulose fluff and absorbent layer, bleached with oxygen and without the use of chlorine
    • Layer 2: Layer of cellulose paper 19grm/m2

Multi Cup Size Nursing Bra

Why We Chose It
4 out of 5 women in the UK start breastfeeding. If you plan to try breastfeeding, it is likely your breasts will engorge in the first 2-3 days from birth. You’re unlikely to know what cup size your breasts will grow to and as you try to establish feeding, the size will continue to change.

So rather than guessing your nursing bra size before you know what you will need, mybirthbox includes the multi award winning Emma-Jane maternity and nursing bra. It is a comfortable, seam free maternity/nursing bra which adjusts to changing body sizes. You just need to choose your chest size when you add mybirthbox to your basket.

We have chosen it in black because we listened to our new mums and although you won’t feel at your most glamorous in these immediate post birth days, the black will help to hide the leaks and patches and be a little extra comfort to you.

Product Description
Size: UK 32-38 One cup only. Fits B-F cups
Colour: Black
Fibre Content: 90% Polyamide 10% Elastane

  • This maternity/nursing bra is seam free, giving an extra soft comfortable fit.
  • For improved support, the shoulder straps have restricted stretch.
  • The soft knitted under band adds to the comfort of this bra.
  • The perfect bra for the expectant mother. This bra will continue to support as breasts grow in size.
  • The ideal bra for the first few months of breast feeding when breasts frequently change size.
  • Each cup has a clip that allows for quick and easy access for breastfeeding.
  • Each cup opens individually for feeding – when one cup is open the other continues to support.
  • Four back eyes allow full adjustment for changes in body size both during pregnancy and when nursing.

Lansinoh nipple cream

Why We Chose It
This is it. These 3 words are that sacred gem that new mums pass onto their expectant friends. Lansinoh’s HPA® Lanolin has been developed for breastfeeding mothers to soothe and protect sore and cracked nipples.

Sore nipples are very common during breastfeeding and can often be a result of the uncomfortable positioning of your baby at the breast. Whilst it is vital to address the cause of this, Lansinoh’s HPA Lanolin is proven to help soothe and protect sore cracked nipples. It’s all natural and safe for your baby to ingest and we suggest you use the cream with breast pads to stop patches forming on your top.

There are some things money can’t buy, but fortunately for your unfortunate nipples in those early weeks, there is Lansinoh HPA® Lanolin. We can’t recommend this highly enough. If you don’t believe us, ask any new mum, read anything online, you want this in your birth box.

Product Description:

It is also the only lanolin product to have received the British Allergy Foundation Seal of Approval.
To use:
Soften a pea-sized amount between fingers and apply to the entire nipple area after feeding or other problem area(s) as needed. Re-apply as often as necessary.

High waist black briefs x3

Why We Chose It
Many women in their 3rd trimester ask about disposable briefs, the paper kind.  However there is unanimous agreement across our new mums and we feel very strongly about this one – you don’t want those, you want BIG, BLACK BRIEFS.

Whatever type of birth you have, there is unlikely to be a time in your life when you are happier to wear some large comfy pants to cover you up to your belly button (especially C-sections) and make you feel fitted and secure.  It’s also highly likely that you’ll seek comfort in and continue to wear them for the next few weeks, long after those disposable ones were binned.

Them being black is also very important.

So just pick your size when you add mybirthbox to your basket.

Product Description:
Size: Small (8-10), Medium (12-14), Large (16-18), X Large (20+)
Colour: Black
Fibre Content: 100% Cotton

  • Ladies 100% cotton plain black full maxi briefs * 3 pairs.
  • Manufactured using a pure 100% cotton fabric for extra softness and a natural feel.
  • A double 100% cotton gusset for added comfort and the waist band and legs are finished off with a soft elasticated lace trim.

Lansinoh breast pads x 24

Why We Chose It
For those who are trying to establish breastfeeding immediately after the birth, your nipples will start to leak within a day or two and as you’d imagine, the more you feed, the more they leak. We know what you’re thinking, the glamour never ends.

There are a wide range of breast pads on the market, but the general consensus across our new mums was that Lansinoh breast pads are the best. They’re soft, secure, absorbent and generally “performed” a little better than others. Reassuringly this seems to be the consensus across contributors, and

Only the best for your birth box.

What is more, this is the only polymer-style breast pad that keeps its shape when wet.Each pad comes individually wrapped for convenience and hygiene.

  • BPA and BPS free
  • Discreet, naturally contoured shape

Lavender oil

Why We Chose It
Lavender oil is another one of those sacred gems passed on to expectant friends and is actually useful before, during and after the birth.

It’s a wonderful natural therapy that is known to help calm you and we suggest putting a few drops in your bath or burning over a candle to create a calming atmosphere during the early stages of labour if you’re allowed, or if you’re planning a home birth. Massaging with well diluted lavender oil during labour has also been known to strengthen contractions.

If you’re one of the 1 in 4 British women whose labour concludes with a C-section, lavender oil can also be massaged into the scar when you are comfortable to do so and help break down the scar tissue.

Product Description
100% Lavender oil extract.
Always tell your midwife if you are using essential oils at home or during labour.

Arnica 30c Pillules

Why We Chose It
Yet another “wise gem” passed on from friends is Arnica; the homeopathic medicinal product used for the symptomatic relief of sprain, muscular aches and bruising or swelling after contusions. It is recommended for during and after labour to reduce the fatigue and bruising from giving birth, to control bleeding, and minimize the strain on soft tissues.

We believe anything that gives your body a little extra help to heal can’t be bad.

Directions for use:
The British Homeopathic society recommend 1 dose is take at the start of labour and another during, or just before delivery. Then 1 dose 3 times a day for the next 3 days following the birth.Press base twice to release two pillules into cap. Unscrew cap and without touching pillules tip them into mouth. Pillules to be sucked or chewed.
Each pillule contains 30c Arnica Montana. Also contains lactose and sucrose.
