Before you go into labour, buy some of those disposable ice-cube bags.

Trim to fit and round off the edges.

Fill only about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick with water and seal.

Place in your freezer, and they will be all ready when you need them!

After baby is born, if you had an episiotomy, you will find these ice-packs wonderfully healing.

Simply take one out of the freezer, wrap in an old, small hand-towel you don't need anymore.

Place this ice pack inside your underpants, against your stitches.

The individual pockets of ice make it flexible enough to mold to your body, and the cool ice will relieve your discomfort!

    This is a good idea, but I find that those bags have uncomfortable seams that would cut into my thighs. Instead, I have soaked a newborn disposable diaper or a maxi pad with water and put in the freezer
