When you are expecting a baby there seems to be so much to remember, doesn't there? I admit I'm a bit old-school when it comes to getting organised - I love to write stuff down on paper! There is something important about a physical list that is right infront of you
I just love to have a printable checklist to guide me or even just a pretty worksheet to write down everything that is on that day's to-do list.
So if you are a paper and pen type of person just like me, you will really appreciate all the free pregnancy printables here which will keep you organised throughout the whole 9 months of your pregnancy.
Writing a birthplan is a really good idea. Although you can never tell what is going to happen while you actually give birth it is important to think about what you want to happen during the birth process. There are lots of decisions that you might have to make at short notice, and if you have thought about all these issues it will make the decicion much easier.
This free printable birth plan template includes all the questions that you should think about, and leaves you some space to fill in any other things that you way want to specify when you are giving birth.
Next up is this useful printable list of everything that you will need to take with you for a hospital birth. It would also be hand as a list of everything you will need to gather together if you have chosen to have a home birth.
This free printable Hospital Bag Checklist includes everything that you will need for both mother and baby - and your birthing partner too!
Babies need a lot of gear! I suggest that you don't leave buying eveything until the last minute. Keep this list handy and you will be able to grab any bargains that you see, whether you spot a discounted pushchair, are offered a baby monitor that a friend no longer needs or see a cute cot in a secondhand shop.
Here is your free printable new baby shopping list which covers everything that you will need.
Baby journals are a comparitively new idea. The idea is that as soon as you know that you are expectiiong you start to keep a record of your thoughts, feelings and experiences alongside more prosaic information on your weight gain or your pre-natal appointments.
You can use it to record your cravings or to write a letter to your future child - or just plan a "babymoon". Some of them even carry on after the birth so that you can record your first few weeks with your new baby (if you have time!)
There are a few free printable Baby journal pages which are free.
Stay organised and keep everything you have to do in one place with this pretty free printable to-do list.
