As midwives, we always say that it’s a good idea to have everything ready a few weeks earlier than your due date in case baby does arrive early. Don’t bet on giving birth on your due date!

If you are 35 weeks pregnant or over and experiencing early signs of labour, your medical team will usually let the birth go ahead. So, if you do have a few weeks to go until your due date, your baby could make an appearance any day now.

Make sure your hospital bag is packed. There’s no harm in being prepared!
