Let's take a look in more detail what each item does - 

Peri Bottle :

This little wash bottle container will be a lifesaver for your lady parts after birth."It's basically a squirt bottle that allows you to clean your bottom easily and gently after the delivery of a baby,”

"Peri" is short for perineum, the area between your vagina and anus—also the place where trying to squeeze a watermelon out of a much smaller hole takes its toll.

We're not going to sugarcoat it: Your vag will be sore, possibly torn, possibly stitched, and peeing will make it feel like it's on fire. 

What happens after birth to the perineal area isn't fun, exciting or cute to talk about, and often doesn't get discussed in childbirth classes or even before you leave the hospital.

So much focus and energy now goes to caring for your new baby, it's important to talk about simple things to help your day-to-day healing become just a little easier on you.

How to use it

The bottle couldn't be easier to use. You simply fill with warm water and while sitting on the toilet, point the opened tip towards the region you would like to cleanse, and squeeze the bottle to squirt the fluid over the region.

The best time to use it? While peeing. A lot of women experience burning during urination after delivery, so the bottle dilutes the urine, making it sting less. Start the stream of water, begin peeing, then continue the stream

Wiping can be excruciating in the beginning, being able to rinse and dab dry is so much better. 

Should C-section moms use a peri bottle?

The many benefits of this little bottle extend even to moms who didn't have a vaginal birth.

If you were in labor before your C-section, your perineum may still be swollen and sensitive. Even if your C-section was planned, it may be painful or difficult to bend over or reach to wipe because of the incision.

Perineal and Breast Heat/Ice Pads

As a new/pregnant mum, you need to prepare for your recovery in the weeks after having a baby and giving birth.

You will be quite sore and tender in your vaginal/ perineal area!

If you’re thinking about self-care after baby, good for you! It can be easy to get so wrapped up in planning for your new arrival that you completely forget to plan for yourself and your own healing process.

Postpartum healing will require a few different tools to help soothe the pain, reduce swelling, and clean any tears or stitched areas. Postpartum ice packs reduce swelling and soothe sore areas — helping you feel more comfortable in the days after childbirth, so you can enjoy time with your newborn!

There are major benefits to using ice packs specifically designed for postpartum women. 

Even after a vaginal birth without tears, the entire perineal area and rectum will be swollen after birth, and you'll likely feel discomfort in the area for around three to five weeks. 

Perineal cool pads are an essential for use postpartum to cool and soothe your perineum and help any postpartum soreness you may experience.

When the perineum gel pad is heated, it can be also used while in the second stage of labour to reduce perineal tears and trauma when pressed against the perineal area (ask your medical team if you're unsure how to correctly apply) 

When frozen, the perineum strip perineal ice pack provides soothing, cooling relief to the perineal area which may be irritated, swollen and tender from childbirth, whether or not you had an episiotomy.

The perineum strip perineal ice pack can also be used to give instant relief from vaginal irritations and inflamed haemorrhoids, or to treat Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD).

After pushing baby, no matter how long for, you will be a bit swollen.  If you need any stitches, you will be a bit sore.  

The Breast ice/heat packs can be warmed or cooled to assist with your breastfeeding journey.

The breast gel pads are designed to help offer relief from soreness associated with breast feeding, blocked milk ducts and engorgement.

When heated, the breast pads can be used as a heat pack to help ease the flow of milk and blocked milk ducts. This can help reduce the amount of time needed for pumping or expressing. 

When frozen, the breast pads can be used as an ice pack to help offer relief from engorgement, pain from inflammation, mastitis, blocked ducts and overall discomfort that can be a result of breastfeeding.

Raspberry leaf tea

Research has also found that women who drink red raspberry leaf tea regularly towards the end of their pregnancies had shorter second stages of labour (pushing stage) than those who don’t.
