How do TendHer feminine cooling pads help?

TendHer provides targeted cold or heat therapy to your pelvic area and reduces friction.

Cold therapy works by reducing blood flow, which can reduce the inflammation and swelling that causes pain and aid recovery and pain management. It also makes the area slightly numb which can help relieve pain and itching.

On the flip side, heat therapy works by increasing blood flow which can promote healing and reduce the perception of pain. According to many midwives, local application of heat to the perineum can promote stretching during labor. Warming up a TendHer Feminine Pack is a convenient way to apply this technique.

TendHer reusable feminine cooling pads can be used:

  • During and after pregnancy
  • Perineal warming in labor
  • To treat post-operative soreness and aid recovery
  • To relieve pain associated with prolapse, interstitial cystitis, yeast infections, UTIs, pudendal neuralgia, postpartum swelling, hemorrhoids or vaginal injuries
  • Soothe the area when experiencing side effects of medications
  • Reduce friction
  • Short term relief of itching associated with conditions such as lichens sclerosis
  • Soothe hot flashes
  • As an eye mask to reduce swelling and relieve tired eyes.
  • Migraines or headaches
  • Boo-boo buddies for toddler accidents

How to use your TendHer feminine cooling pads

Cold application: Place gel pack in fridge or freezer for 30 minutes. Pat dry and insert chilled gel pack into sleeve. Place in underwear with fabric against your skin for 10 - 20 minutes or as advised by a healthcare professional. Spray with witch hazel for extra soothing. Aaahhh!

Notes on cold application: You can use TendHer cooling pads straight from the fridge without the sleeve. And for extra absorption just place TendHer straight on top of your maxi pad.

Hot application: Immerse gel packs in hot water for around 5 minutes. NO microwave or boiling water. Pat dry and insert warm gel pack into sleeve. Place in underwear with fabric against your skin. Fewer women experience third or fourth degree tears when warm compresses are applied during labour.

Note on hot application: DO NOT warm your cooling pads in the microwave or with boiling water! You definitely wouldn’t want to (ahem) burn that tender area. Microwaving your TendHer Feminine Pack could damage the film and produce uneven hot spots in the gel, which could potentially hurt you!

How to store your TendHer feminine cooling pads

Store your TendHer cooling pads in the fridge to extend shelf-life, or freezer for extra long (indefinite) shelf-life.

We recommend replacing your gel packs if the gel begins to look hard or dry. The gel may turn from clear to opaque-yellow. This is normal and a true sign that our product is all natural. It is still as safe and effective as ever.

How to clean your TendHer feminine cooling pads

Hand wash your gel pads with soap and water; pat dry. Sleeves can be machine washed and dried.
