Postpartum Padsicle Gel Blend (100ml)

Why it's loved

If you’re looking for a convenient, all-in-one gel to prep your postpartum padsicles - this is it!

A padsicle is a maternity/sanitary pad that has had soothing ingredients spread onto the pad's inner surface.

The pads are typically prepped prior to birth and then frozen.

They're used like any maternity pad in those early days after birth. But they come with the bonus of providing direct, cooling relief at the same time!

Padsicles containing this gel help reduce swelling, cleanse the area and provide sweet relief to those tender areas after giving birth.

This gel takes the stress out of finding all the individual ingredients to make your own. It's all been done fo you!

100ml makes up to 20 padsicles.

The effect of Aloe Vera on post-episiotomy pain and wound healing showed significant differences in the healing scores. With the participants in the treatment group reporting 'significantly lower pain scores' in comparison with control group."

Horsetail has also shown to significantly decrease episiotomy pain intensity and promoted wound healing in comparison with placebo.
