    Never been in hospital in my life - do they have hairdryers? :haha:
    Vain I know but believe me my hair is terrible unless its blow dried then straightened and I don't want to frighten the visitors

    although its a general question - if there are any glaswegans out there - i'm going to the southern general

    :thumbup:

    No hair driers or straighteners in hospital. You could take one with you but this may disturb the other mum's and babies on your ward. Also there is only mirrors in the bathrooms and they have no plugs there. I just tied my hair back when I was in hospital. I think my son was about 4 weeks old before I had time to blow dry and straighten my hair at home! :p

    Ha ha, I love this post. Not something I've thought about before, but no doubt would have cropped up when packing hospital bag.

    They must provide them, or allow them, as you could get a cold if you cant dry hair properly. Will have to find out now what applies down here !

    Wish our hospital provided them! Can't even take your own as not allowed to plug anything in that has not been checked by their electricians...!

    Im going to rotherham hospital which is a fair way away from you but there you cant take anything that plugs in not even fone charger :-/
    something about health and safety everything that plugs in has to be checked by estates department and they will not check personal items unless you are long term patient that isnt going home anytime soon

    Do you know how long you're going to stay? I'm in Forth Valley and unless anything unforeseen happens they send you home after 6 hours. So no time for visitors or to worry about hair. :D I'm going to pack for a longer stay as well bit leave that bag in the car for hubby to bring in if it's needed. Might be an idea to do the same with bulkier items like your hair dryer?

    Nah, just take it in with you. I know people say dont bother but I went for a shower when amelie was an hour or so old, then blowdried and straightened my hair and felt a lot better for it. The next day I put my makeup on for going home :shrug:
