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
