Pregnancy can be an incredibly exciting time, but the expense can also be quite daunting. Luckily there are dozens of companies and organizations offering freebies, samples and useful information packs to help the transition from bump to motherhood (or indeed fatherhood) that much easier on the pocket.
And besides, who wouldn't like a chestful of baby freebies sent their way?
Here follows a list of all the pregnancy and baby freebies I've been able to find, with links to websites or more information wherever possible. I'll try to keep this list updated with the latest offers and membership sites, so please feel free to let us know of new freebies in the comments below.
P.S. If you're using Firefox, I highly recommend using this add-on to help you fill in web forms super fast!
