Third Trimester

Q&A: Postpartum Supplies For New Mom?

What items will I need to take care of myself "down there" after I deliver?

You're smart to realize that baby's not the only one who'll have needs after delivery... Here's what you'll need to take care of yourself.

[  ] Ice packs (in case of tearing during birth or swelling after)

[  ] 2-3 week supply of ultra absorbent sanitary pads

[  ] Panty liners

[  ] Hemorrhoid wipes and cream (can become necessary after labor, even if pregnancy was free of problems…sorry)
