Aka the strip of a thousand uses!
If you’ve been following the Bouncing Back From Birth journey for a while you’ll know how much I love the BodyICE range. And not just because it was created by a champion Lydia Lassila, no really, she’s an actual gold medalist Olympic champion *BOO YA!* For those of you who are new here, let me bring you up to speed.
The BodyICE Woman perineum strip is full of soft gel beads, it has been designed thin and long to serve and protect your perineum. I love it, firstly because of the boss level of comfort it provides, but also because it is super adaptable.
Like what, you ask?
Pubis Symphis Dysfunction or Pelvic Girdle Pain:
feeling sharp pains in your pelvis or pubic bone? Rocking a waddle? Calm the pains by warming your BodyICE Perineum Strip and folding it in a ‘V’. Place inside your underwear on your pubic bone. So discreet, much warm, very Aaaaah that’s better!
P P Push it real good!
During the second stage of labour warm your strip and gently place directly on the perineum. Warmth encourages your Perineum to do its stretchy work and (hopefully!) remain intact.
Reward your Vajayjay.
Time to change it up and pop your strip in the freezer. This is her time to shine and soothe your tenders.
Chicks dig scars.
C-section Mama’s can get in on the action too: use cool on top of your dressing to alleviate swelling
Aunt Flo returns!
Use as above for PSD/PGP once your period returns, it’s bliss!
Headaches be gone!
Tuck a frozen strip inside a headband at the base of your head - better than a cold flannel by far and hands-free!
