Belly birth mama, your healing journey just got a whole lot easier - these ice packs are designed to help you 'chill' comfortably. Regularly icing your incision is a safe and natural way to soothe pain, reduce swelling and prevent scar tissue from building up.
We recommend icing every 2-3 hours for fifteen minutes at a time for the first five weeks after a C-section. You've got this mama!
BENEFITS OF POSTPARTUM ICE PACKS
These cold packs provide instant relief, reduce swelling and promote healing, suitable for:
2 x specifically designed reusable gel bead packs.
3 x washable soft outer sleeves.
Pop packs in the fridge for an hour or so. Once cold (not frozen), apply to c-section incision, don’t place it directly on skin, pop a towel in between.
And don't forget, these help soothe swelling and itching sensations (If you deliver via c-section your vulva will still need heaps of love!)
HOT MAMA TIP
Once you are healed and feeling good, you can keep these as ice packs great for headaches or they can be heated up for a little extra muscle tension relief in other places!
