How important are pillows to surgery recovery?
Pillows are an important aspect of your c-section recovery and other surgeries like hysterectomy, tummy tuck, hernia repairs. It is recommended that you hold a small pillow (like our Pocket Pillow) over your incision as you cough or sneeze which provides support to your tender belly. Additionally, place a small pillow between your tender incision area and the seatbelt on any car ride to make a safer and more comfortable car ride. We suggest leaving a pillow in the car for this purpose. Once you are at home, your tummy pillow can also be used to prevent pets and small children from bumping your incisions.
Why does this pillow have a pocket?
The pocket on the C-Section Pocket Pillow is to hold an ice pack or a heated pack for your comfort against your tender abdominal incision/s. Our Pocket Pillow comes with 2 cold/hot packs. We send you two so you have one to use while the other is in the freezer or being warmed in the microwave. When this particular tummy pillow was developed, our customers let us know they were using our cold/hot packs between them and their pillow. "Genius!" we thought! And so, our next generation of tummy pillow added the pocket for the cold/hot packs.
How do I wash my Pocket Pillow?
Remove inserted pillow from the cover. Wash the cover and the pillow separately in cold water, delicate cycle. Tumble dry low or hang to dry.
