An Australian dad’s blog post on things you didn’t know you need to buy for your partner after birth went viral after he listed frozen water-filled condoms as a must-have item.
He says frozen condoms are the perfect shape to rest between a new mom’s legs, to ease pain and swelling post-birth.
So how do the vagina ice pops work?
Relax, you don’t have to insert the vagina ice pop anywhere – that’s the last thing you want to do after having just squeezed a tiny little human being out of there. Simply fill a few condoms with water, pop them in the freezer, and place them in your undies between your legs to help relieve pain and swelling.
A word of advice
Check with your doctor first before trying this nifty trick, as there is a risk to placing something cold against your sensitive vulva.
