SOOTHING SALVE - by Blissful Herbs
This gentle and natural balm is locally sourced and can be used to support the healing of the perineum after birth. It is the perfect remedy for small tears, grazes and skid marks.
Additionally, the ‘balm of a thousand uses’ has been specially formulated so it can be used for nipple care during breastfeeding and because of its properties, does not need to be wiped off for baby to breastfeed.
The soothing salve can also be used for preventing nappy rash, general first aid and for use on minor skin problems such as mild eczema, small cuts and mosquito bites (to name a few!).
So even after you’ve recovered postpartum, soothing salve makes a fantastic all natural addition to your first aid!
BREAST PADS - BodyIce Women
BodyICE Woman breast pads have been designed by mums, for mums, to fit comfortably inside your bra and around your nipples to provide relief from soreness associated with breastfeeding, blocked milk ducts and engorgement.
The breast pads have also been cleverly designed to conform around your breast pump and when heated, can help ease the flow of milk and blocked milk ducts.
COOLING PERINEUM STRIP - BodyIce Women
BodyIce Woman have created heaven in a strip, and a hospital bag must have! This specially designed perineum strip can be used both pre and post childbirth.
It is comfortable and easy to use in your recovery process, providing instant cooling and soothing relief to the perineal area which can be swollen and tender.
Additionally, the strip can be used to treat hemorrhoids and symphysis pubis dysfunction.
When heated, this multipurpose strip can be used effectively during the second stage of labour to help reduce the occurrence of perineal trauma. So, it is a hospital bag essential!
The strip comes ready with 5 disposable covers.

SKIN MILK UDDER CREAM - MooGoo
MooGoo’s Skin Milk Udder Cream is used in a number of hospitals in Australia as a moisturiser cream for dry and damaged skin. It easily soaks in with skin repair ingredients and is non-greasy. It helps to keep skin looking supple which is a huge win, especially when exhaustion can leave our skin feeling dry.
PROTEIN SHOT LEAVE IN CONDITIONER - MooGoo
Moogoo’s leave in conditioner is made from natural ingredients and includes coconut oil, jojoba oil and olive oil - all of which will keep your hair feeling smooth and supple. Our favourite part about this awesome leave in conditioner? It can be used on dry hair (as well as damp) - so even in the postpartum days where you may not have a lot of time between baby feedings etc. you will still have time to gently nourish your hair.
COOLING GEL EYE MASK - The Body Shop
There’s no denying it, some days you will feel as though you need toothpicks just to keep your eyes open. The cooling gel eye mask can help soothe the delicate eye area and help you to relax. My best tip - have it ready to go while you breastfeed for a quick recharge.
