Pregnant mum-of-21 Sue Radford shares what she packs inside her hospital bag as she prepares to go into labour
SUE Radford has revealed what she will be taking to the hospital with her as she prepares to go into labour.
The pregnant mum-of-21 is expected to give birth any day now as she is now 38 weeks pregnant and was due to go into hospital this weekend.
Taking to her family’s YouTube channel Sue, 45, from Morecambe, Lancs, did a show and tell of her hospital bag as she prepares for the arrival of baby number 22.
Speaking in the video she said: “So as I am now 38 weeks pregnant and I am due to go into hospital at the end of the week, I thought I best get my hospital bag packed.
“Depending on when she arrives I may not be staying in overnight or I may be staying in overnight, so I am just packing enough to stay in overnight.”
Sue was joined by her daughter Millie, 18, who is also expecting a baby, so that she could “take notes” for when it came to her turn to give birth.
Among her many items was a nightie that Sue has owned for almost a decade.
She explained: “I’ve worn this nightie probably for the last nine of them. I’m not superstitious about anything but I do have to have this nightie.”
The mum also packed socks to keep her feet warm as she finds her feet “always get really cold during labour.”
She added: “I am also packing some big pants guys, you can’t not take big pants, you have to Millie. As you can tell they’re dark – you don’t want to be wearing white knickers.”
Other items included nursing bras, breast pads, sleepwear as well as toiletries and clothes for the newborn.
But Sue was also careful to pack herself a few treats.
“I am definitely taking chocolate, they will keep mummy company” she joked.
The Radfords are Britain's biggest family, with Noel and Sue parents to Chris, 30, Sophie, 26, Chloe, 24, Jack, 22, Daniel, 20, Luke, 19, Millie, 18, Katie, 17, James, 16, Ellie, 14, Aimee, 13, Josh, 12, Max, 11, Tillie, nine, Oscar, eight, Casper, seven, Hallie, four, Phoebe, three, Archie, two, and Bonnie, one.
Sadly, the couple's 17th child Alfie was still born on July 6, 2014.
They also have three grandchildren – who are Sophie's kids – Daisy, six, Ayprill, four, and Leo, two.
The parents famously don’t claim benefits and rely on Noel’s bakery business to make ends meet.
