Australian Lydia Lassila, who is an Olympic Gold Medalist in freestyle skiing, was inspired to launch BodyIce Woman when she started her own journey into motherhood.
When she realised that there were very few effective options available in the market, she set about developing stylish, easy-to-use gel-based ice and heat packs to help fellow mums feel comfortable and empowered after childbirth and during their breastfeeding journey.
What is a perineum ice pack & why do I need it?
Aperineum ice pack is a purposely designed hot/cold pack to help treat the perineal area pre and post childbirth. It can be used during labour to help reduce the risk of tearing and after birth to provide relief to the perineal area which may be irritated, swollen and tender. It can also be used to treat Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD) as well as Hemorrhoids.
Is heat or cold better for engorged breasts?
Both can be used for engorgement. We recommend using heat before/during a feed to help milk flow and letdown and cold after a feed to help soothe swelling and inflammation.
How do you apply an ice pack to the perineum?
The BodyIce Perineum Strip comes with five washable sleeves (or covers). You can heat or cool the strip to the desired temperature, pop inside the sleeve then inside your underwear/directly onto the perineal area. It is advised that you keep in place for no longer than 20 minutes.
How long do I have to leave the ice pack on my breast?
It is advised that you leave in place for no longer than 20 minutes.
