Best of Pregnancy Winner for Best Postpartum Care Kit
After giving birth, your body is going to need some serious TLC. There’s a list of postpartum essentials that are key to easing your recovery—but instead of dropping a dozen individual items into your cart, grab the Frida Mom postpartum recovery kit and call it a day. This kit made major waves when it was first introduced in 2019, as Frida took the standard care products expectant women typically stock up on—a peri bottle, maxi pads, ice packs, witch hazel pads, etc.—and completely redesigned them to better meet new moms’ unique needs. This kit was a saving grace in our own postpartum recoveries (and one of the best things we packed in our hospital bag!). No wonder it’s a repeat Best of Pregnancy award winner.
This kit has all the essentials you’ll need for labor and delivery and the ensuing recovery period, in one easy grab-and-go box: a delivery gown, grippy labor and delivery socks, an upside down peri bottle, disposable postpartum underwear, instant ice maxi pads, perineal cooling pads and perineal healing foam, plus a storage caddy and carry case. Trust us, these clever items blow the hospital freebies out of the water
The ingenious peri bottle is designed to be upside down, allowing your hand to remain above deck while you direct warm water to where it needs to go down below (that way nothing drips down your hand)
No need to assemble circular witch hazel pads in your panties anymore—the rectangular perineal cooling pads are each perfectly sized to line your underwear
Two-in-one instant ice maxi pads combine the relief of first aid ice packs and the absorbancy of a maxi pad. This “padsicle” absorbs up to 260g of liquid, so you don’t have to worry about leaks
