My partner and I have been workers at fest for the last four years. We're working again this year, but this time I'll be 7 months pregnant. We live in the UK and most of our gear is stored in the US, but I'm looking for suggestions of anything different I might need this year to be a bit more comfortable on the land.

other than our basic gear of our main tent with air mattress, and then a smaller tent/ "closet"- I've added a solar shower (not for showering, just for hot water) and foot soak basin, a small comfy chair, and body pillow. Since it's my first pregnancy I know there are things I haven't even considered. So if you've been pregnant, or been at fest pregnant and have any tips, please feel free to share!!

I was about 8 months pregnant with my oldest at fest, about 5 months with my second and about 3 months with my youngest, but I was not a worker for any of those fests. For me, the best thing was a comfy sleeping set up. Being able to get a good nights sleep made all the difference. Honestly I felt my best during my pregnancies while I was at fest!

I don't know about pregnant, but I got a memory foam topper for my air mattress a couple of years ago, and it makes the whole set-up much more welcoming for my fest body. Maybe someone who's driving has one you can borrow.

Take catnaps whenever you can.

Thanks for the tips! Will definitely stay SUPER hydrated, take lots of naps- and OMG, can't believe I didn't think of a memory foam topper- will definitely purchase one to leave with our fest gear for the future!

Thanks lovelies!
