Vagina ice pops – try this post-birth remedy

If your baby is soon to arrive, you might want to have a couple of vagina ice pops in the freezer to help with post-birth swelling down there.


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.
