Breast & Perineal Remedial Packs
Our breast and perineal packs can be used hot or cold to decrease pain and inflammation associated with childbirth and breastfeeding issues including mastitis, engorgement and blocked milk ducts.
What's Included: 2 breast heat/ice packs with protective covers & 1 perineal heat/ice pack
Breast Pack Usage
HOT - Warm the breast packs in the microwave or in warm water. Apply prior to breastfeeding and expressing to assist in relieving blocked ducts and help encourage the milk let down reflex and flow. This will help minimise the time spent breastfeeding and expressing. Heat therapy also helps with general breast pain and tenderness, and aids in preventing mastitis.
COLD - Cool the breast packs in the freezer. Use as a breast ice pack after breastfeeding to relieve pain and inflammation. Cold therapy can help relieve pain and tenderness associated with engorgement, mastitis, blocked ducts and general discomfort associated with breastfeeding.
Perineal Pack Usage
HOT - Warm the perineal pack in the microwave or in warm water. When heated, the perineal strip 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 be used prior to antenatal perineal massage to help provide comfort and help the tissues to stretch.
COLD - Cool the perineal pack in the freezer. Designed to fit comfortably in your underwear, our perineal ice packs will help reduce pain and inflammation post childbirth. The pack can also provide relief from symphysis pubis dysfunction, vulval varicosities and haemorrhoids.
Our specifically designed breast heat and ice packs can also be used for women recovering from breast surgery, and help relieve any pain, tenderness and swelling associated during the post-surgical phase. They can also be used while suppressing from breastfeeding to help soothe the breasts.
Our perineal ice packs can also provide relief from haemorrhoids.
