Is there anything similar in England/Ireland/Wales? X
Hi, I’ve heard new mums say they doubt they would ever use anything from the box. The were all wrong. Must be a God send to the lesser well off parents . You keeping well tinks ?
This has been going for some time and I think it's a real boost for some families. Sure you'll put everything in it to good use tinks.
That's wonderful and as you say so helpful too.

I remember getting a bag of goodies when mine were born decades ago.

The wee books & thermometer I will use!!

The clothes might not be to my personal taste & ill likely donate them if not, luckily I have that option!!

The box... I plan to keep memory stuff in!!

Closely monitored Anne thanks for asking- well apart from horrendous pelvic pain :0(

Self Refd to physio a month ago & bought a brace! Sadly due to covid, video calls only and not for another week!!

There's never been a national scheme in England but some NHS trusts have tried out the idea

That's so lovely, Tinks. I doubt I will have the opportunity to tell you if they do the same in Ireland! ;-)

Got nothing when I had my son in the UK. Do recall a few nice goodies from the hospital when the daughter was born in Canada. Not much but it did include a rectal thermometer. :-)
Good for the Scottish government, makes me proud :)
my, do they actually come with a baby in them like in the photo? Trust the Scots to invent a handy new means of delivery.

What a lovely idea.
Jno. A baby is optional.
