I had my first child in 2015 and was given a bounty bag by the hospital, it was filled with information pamphlets and product samples. Apparently you could also get one after pregnancy but I never got one.

Do they still give these bags out, a lot of things have changed since my last pregnancy and I think one of these bags could help

  • Yep we get a nappy bag full of goodies!

  • I had my baby is April and if you’re a NSW resident you get a baby welcome bag with lots of great stuff. The bag itself is a nappy bag and it comes filled with a play mat, change Matt, wipes, books etc. I think Victoria has something similar not sure about the other states.

  • Your midwife should normally give you one, and I know the hospital gives you one from the vic government these days,.

  • My OB gave me one on first appointment ☺️

  • I remember those! I got the first, and a second (by going to Target) but the third never ever turned up.

  • I’m not sure if they offer them anymore. My son was born in 2009, I did get a bounty bag but it didn’t really have anything useful in it. Vouchers to things, and information really. They made it sound like you would be getting something exciting – so personally was disappointing to me at the time.

  • Yes I got one of these bags provided by NSW Health. It had lots of products to trial along with a baby sleep bag, books, playmat and thermometer.

  • Last I saw, you can get them from chemists.

  • I only received them with my first child and got nothing for my second and third. I’ve heard that some chemists to give them away though.

  • Many years ago you could collect them from the chemist after the baby was born. Google bounty bags baby, you’ll find some info on how to collect them

  • I have no idea, I never got one

  • I also got them with both my children over the years they have had less in them. Maybe contact your local CAFHS they may know.

  • I got the expecting mum and post baby bags for my first two, but nothing for my third. I googled the bounty bags and found out that selected chemists do give them away. I went in asking for the expecting parent bounty bag, but they didn’t have any so gave me the new parent bag, claiming they are exactly the same.

  • I never got one. I think it just depends on the place you go to. My friend got two – one for being pregnant and one for after pregnancy but it was only because she was a regular at that chemist and they knew her.

  • I didn’t get one. I did hear about them but never got one offered.
