Our post-partum recovery packs feature products that are hand selected and recommended by our women’s health physiotherapists to aid in your recovery post-birth.
Recovery looks a little bit different for every mother which is why we have created the a variety of different packs for you to chose from.
The C-Section Recovery Pack includes:
Perineal Ice and Heat Pack: When you deliver your baby vaginally or spend time labouring, your perineum is likely to be sore afterwards. The perineal ice pack is used to cool and reduce swelling. For a comfortable fit, it’s shaped to fit the perineum and comes with 5 disposable covers. It’s also the perfect shape to place on your scar during c-section recovery to reduce swelling and sooth, or to use heated for after-birth pains. Place in ice water or freezer for approximately 2 hours (or until desired temperature) and apply for 20 minutes at a time. For heat therapy, heat in warm water or in microwave 5 seconds at a time until desired temperature is reached. To clean wash with soapy water.
Breast Therapy Ice and Heat Pack Whether you are starting your breast-feeding journey, pumping or bottle feeding, your breasts will become quite tender post-partum. Our breast Therapy Ice and Heat Packs are designed to fit comfortably in your bra to alleviate discomfort. Cold therapy can assist in relieving pain from engorgement, inflammation, mastitis and blocked ducts. Simply place in the freezer for 2 hours or submerge in icy water until desired temperature is achieved. Hot therapy can assist in increasing milk flow and clearing blocked ducts. To heat place in hot water or microwave 5 seconds at a time until desired temperature. To clean wash with soapy water. If you are suffering with mastitis or blocked ducts, our women’s health physiotherapists can provide ultrasound treatment to help you.
Disposable Post-Partum Underwear: The last thing you need to worry about during your post-partum recovery is changing an uncomfortable, oversized maternity pad or leaking. Disposable post-partum underwear is designed to be leak-free and 3 x more absorbent than maxi pads. The high-waisted design makes them perfect for both vaginal and c-section recovery, and the tear away sides make them convenient and easy to change during recovery. This 8 x pack of disposable post-partum underwear is a hospital bag must have. Sizes are M (6-10) or L (12-20).
Tummy feeling tender? We get it! Your core will take some time to get strong again, for now you need extra support. We have two support options for you to chose from:
TUBIGRIP provides firm but comfortable support by applying even and consistent compression to your pelvis and torso. This helps to reduce swelling, assists with the healing of abdominal separation, and provides relief for lower back and pelvic pain.
SRC RECOVERY SHORTS apply targeted compression to activate your pelvic floor, reduce muscle fatigue and swelling and to promote core stability. Designed in consultation with an obstetrician, SRC shorts are recommended to aid the treatment of a number of post-partum conditions such as abdominal separation (DRAM), episiotomy wounds, c-section wounds, perineal trauma and lower back pain.
