When frozen, the perineum strip provides soothing, cooling relief to the perineal area which may be irritated, swollen and tender from childbirth.
Each pack contains the perineum strip and five disposable sleeves. We’ve added in an additional 5 sleeves so you can soothe your sensitive areas for longer.
BODYICE WOMAN - BREAST PADS
Throughout pregnancy and breastfeeding, your breasts go through some tender moments. Don’t despair ladies, each BodyICE Woman breast pad has been designed 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 are cleverly designed to conform around your breast pump and when heated, can help ease the flow of milk and blocked milk ducts.
TOM ORGANIC - MATERNITY PADS
Described by new mothers as ‘like sitting on a cloud’, TOM Organic Maternity Pads are hypoallergenic, breathable, comfortable and ultra absorbent. Contoured fit and extra long for maximum coverage, with a form fitting, elasticised wingless technology, these pads offer maximum comfort in the days after giving birth.
MILKMAIDMUMMA - NIGHT NURSING PADS
How are they different from our regular nursing pads? Minky nursing pads measure 12cm in diameter, so are larger than our regular pads and are made up of 4 layers (instead of three)
MILKMAIDMUMMA - DAY NURSING PADS
Throughout your breastfeeding journey, breasts can leak milk in between feeds and during the night. Our nursing pads provide comfort and protection during this time.
Our reusable nursing pads are made from three layers of quality fabrics with a white soft bamboo terry layer that goes against the skin. Bamboo gets softer with each wash and acts to wick moisture, is breathable and has antibacterial properties to help reduce the risk of infections such as mastitis. The middle layer of Microfibre absorbs your milk and the outer patterned layer of PUL fabric has a waterproof backing to protect you from leaking through.
MOOGOO - SKIN MILK UDDER CREAM
MooGoo’s Skin Milk Udder Cream is used in a number of hospitals in Australia as a moisturiser cream for dry and damaged skin following radiation treatment and chemotherapy.
MOOGOO - PROTEIN SHOT LEAVE IN CONDITIONER
At MooGoo we make original formulas from natural ingredients and never use synthetic additives in our skin or hair products. That is why you will find nourishing oils instead of silicone in our Protein Shot. Oils like Coconut Oil that penetrates hair well due to the shorter chain length of the molecule (hair is not easy to penetrate.) We have also used oils like Jojoba Oil as it is smooth and slippery but doesn’t build up. We have used Olive Oil because it is a great oil for dry hair. Milk Protein to help prevent split ends. We also add Panthenol and Natural Vitamin E.
