What are Bounty Packs?

The Bounty packs are bags of free samples and information for expectant and new mums, and provide you with the opportunity to 'try before you buy', a range of samples for you, your baby and your family.

 

Which Bounty Packs am I entitled to?

During the early stages of pregnancy your GP will refer you to your local midwife. When you first visit the scanning clinic or local midwife, you should receive the first of the Bounty packs, the 'Pregnancy Information Folder'. Inside this pack is our first free guide, 'You and Your pregnancy ' Within this is a voucher for you to redeem your 'Mum-To-Be' pack from ASDA, Boots, Kiddicare or Superdrug, which includes lots of free samples for newly expectant mums to try before they buy.

Once you have given birth and are on the maternity unit with your newborn, you will receive the 'Newborn' pack from your local Bounty distributor. This pack contains the 'You and Your Newborn' guide with lots of information and advice for these early stages. Inside this guide is a voucher for you to redeem your ‘Family’ pack from ASDA, Boots, Kiddicare or Superdrug. Inside this final pack is the 'You and Your Growing Family' guide with lots of information & advice for your growing child.

Your local healthcare professional should be able to obtain one from the hospital if you ask her during your next visit.
