Award winning Perineal Cold Packs are designed to promote healing and reduce the pain, swelling and bruising of the perineal area following childbirth.
Given out routinely by maternity hospitals in the USA, you can now purchase these wonderful creations for use in your own home, (or hospital) in the U.K.!
Easy to use, simply firmly squeeze the pad to rupture the inner chamber and shake to activate the cooling effect. Place in your underwear, just as you would with a regular maternity pad. The comfortable cooling sensation will last a minimum of 20 minutes although will normally last longer. Please note, it is recommended that cooling therapy is used for only 20 minutes at a time.
Gentler and safer than ice packs, there is no risk of freezer burn.
Instant activation allows you to use wherever needed, pack some in your hospital bag - you do not require a freezer.
Especially welcome if you require stitches post birth. Did you know up to 90% of women suffer some degree of tearing during a vaginal delivery?
