Ice Ice Booby Perineal Ice/Heat Packs
What’s included - 2 gel bead perineal packs - this twin pack provides convenience, allowing you to rotate the packs in-between uses.
Cold Therapy (Freeze in freezer) - Designed to fit comfortably in your underwear, the perineal ice packs will help reduce pain and inflammation of your bits “down under” post childbirth. They will become your best friend in the first 24-48 hours post childbirth.
The frozen perineal packs can also provide relief from birth trauma, symphysis pubis dysfunction, vulval varicosities and haemorrhoids.
Heat Therapy (Heat in microwave or warm water) - When heated, the perineal packs can provide heat therapy during the second stage of labour to help the surrounding tissues stretch and reduce the risk of perineal trauma. A warmed perineal pack can also be used prior to antenatal perineal massage to help provide comfort and help the tissues to stretch.
NOTE - For optimal hygiene, Ice Ice Booby recommend wrapping tissue paper or a maternity pad around the perineal packs to protect the skin. For hygiene reasons, Ice Ice Booby recommend washing your perineal ice and heat packs after each use in warm, soapy water followed by a rinse with cold water. To ensure quality and integrity of the packs, store in a plastic container in-between uses.
