Birthing - What you can expect

The pain associated with a vaginal delivery was supposed to end with birth of the baby, right? Unfortunately, a few kilos worth of baby passing through a relatively small opening causes discomfort and sometimes even vaginal tears. The perineum is the area of skin and muscle found between the vagina and the anus. During childbirth it stretches to allow the baby's head through. As you're trying to put the memories of the contractions and the delivery behind you, there will probably be some tenderness, swelling and irritation in your perineal area.

Your recovery time and the amount of perineal pain you experience will vary by your method of delivery. Here's what you can most likely expect:

  •     Vaginal birth without tears: The entire perineal area and rectum will be swollen after birth, and you'll likely feel discomfort in the area for three to five weeks.
  •     Vaginal tear or an episiotomy: Expect the wound to heal in seven to ten days and to feel especially sore and sensitive for six weeks or more.
  •     C-section following labour: Depending on how long you pushed and whether baby's head came close to crowning, expect some discomfort after birth.
  •     It's also possible that during delivery you may develop hemorrhoids, which can range from uncomfortable to extremely painful.

Be prepared. Medichill Peri-Pads satisfy the expectant and nursing mother’s needs for soothing comfort, hopefully making the birth of your baby memorable for all the right reasons.

Make sure you pack them in your hospital bag as well as having them ready in your home freezer

"For my first Bub I went private, so I stayed in hospital for four days where I had access to the Medichill ice packs - which were heaven - so I wanted to stock up for home this time around."
Kind regards

"Thank you. I just gave birth at John Hunter Hospital. They gave me some, your product really is truly fantastic and unique. They should stock you guys in all chemists. Thanks."

"Hello Medichill, I couldn't find any timings for deliveries on your website but I am very much hoping the delivery is quick as I've just come out of hospital and used these fantastic ice pads. The hospital couldn't give me any more than a couple which I have already used. Thanks."
