Mamas spend most of their pregnancy thinking about what the baby will need. We pour over car seat options, strollers, registry items, and spend hours getting the nursery prepared. We rarely think about what we will need for ourselves postpartum. Us mamas go through a tremendous change ourselves as we bring a baby into this world and require just as much care and attention! One small favor you can do for yourself is stocking up on padsicles for some postpartum comfort.
If you’ve already had a baby you know what a padsicle or perineal ice pack is; a true life saver during the postpartum period. If you’re expecting you’ll want to definitely read on!
