Women worry so much about the pain they will experience during labor and delivery that they hardly consider the aftermath. Once you have your babe, you have a whole lot to consider and the pain can be pretty intense during the healing phase right after birth.

Luckily You’ll be distracted by your bundle of joy and that alone is a miraculous painkiller.

But some of it you’re gonna feel and it’s definitely not the fun part of it all. That being said, there are some really great products that can help sooth the pain you feel postpartum and they’re real-life savors.

Incontinence Underwear

Ok, so things can get pretty rough down there. You will be super swollen and very leaky and there will be blood. Not trying to scare you but I’m just laying it down like it is.

You’ll need something to wear besides your regular underwear and these right here are perfect. They’re what I used and they are comfy and they work well.


Pain Relieving Spray 

You’ll Need a really good Pain Relieving Spray and Earth Mama Perineal Spray is the BEST. I used it and I loved it. It works really well and is safe with excellent reviews. You can have a look at it right here. It’s a must.



Tucks Pads


These are sooo comforting. I used them every time and they are cooling and cleansing. I highly recommend them! You can Yours here. 


Perineal Ice Pack 


You won’t be able to go without these Perineal Ice packs. You need them to help with the swelling and they will help reduce the pain so much. I loved mine and used them nonstop the first week.



A Cleansing Bottle Or Peri Bottle 


These are the best and some hospitals Will give you one but if they don’t Amazon.com has one you can buy for cheap. You can have a look right here. You’ll also need pads { and these are great}, of course even though you have those special undies. You’ll bleed a lot and you’ll need plenty of protection.



The bottle really comes in handy though to clean things up and feels good too because you’ll feel fresher.

Healing Ointment 


This silver infused ointment is great for tears and hemorrhoids too. It feels good and it helps you heal quickly. It’s another must-have. You can buy it here. 

I actually recommend this ointment for any first aid kit. It’s awesome.



Nipple Balm


We’ve talked a lot about bottoms so far but let’s go up a little. Those nipples are gonna hurt. It’s no joke, but don’t let that discourage you from breastfeeding. I’ve nursed all three of mine, each for several years.

But the pain is real when you first start and you definitely have to have a really good nipple balm. This one right here has always been my favorite. it’s called Boob Ease 😉


Gel Nursing Pads 


These are like little ice packs for your nipples and they’re totally necessary. Here’s a really good brand, I used them and they’re awesome.

There are a few other things you may want to pick up like a Donut pillow to sit on, a  postpartum Belly Wrap and some K-Y Jelly for when you’re ready to try sex. Just a thought.



I hope this helps and I am wishing you a lovely postpartum with minimum pain.
