My best friend
My best friend got me a birthbox a few weeks before I was due - it was so useful once my baby came. I used all of the products and it saved me having to buy everything individually.- Gabby, London
Everything I needed for my hospital bag sorted, even things I didn't know I needed but came in super useful on the day. I'll be buying this for my pregnant friends.- Jess - Tunbridge Wells
I loved giving this as a gift, the products were of such high quality and the packaging was really unique...I will definitely be using them again for all my mums to be.- Kate – Gloucestershire
Big pants are a must after birth and these ones were great! They fitted well and were comfortable even after my episiotomy. They worked well with the maternity towels which were really comfortable and stayed in place.- Steph, Southampton
LOVED my birth box
LOVED my birth box; I finally understood what I needed for labour and why! Got all my hospital bag bits in one go and had started using all of them before I’d even left the
hospital- Kathryn, Hertfordshire
I wanted to put a box together for my pregnant friend as my sister had done for me and this has it all. The note inside was a lovely touch.- Fern, Kenilworth
