Frida, the parent company behind Frida Baby, the makers of the life-saving NoseFrida SnotSucker, just launched Frida Mom—a groundbreaking new line of postpartum recovery products dedicated to preparing women for the raw realities of the fourth trimester.

After nine months of doctor appointments, regular check-ups and an overwhelming amount of information, once baby arrives, you’re on your own. All of your—and everyone else’s attention—shifts to your tiny human, and by default, new moms fall to the bottom of the priority list. But what about all those crazy and painful changes happening to your body? It’s so important for women to allow themselves time to recover post-birth, but up until now, they were seriously lacking the tools or guidance needed to properly heal.

The intimidation factor, before, during and after, is debilitating,” says Hirschhorn in a news release. “Then you’re expected to tend to a newborn in between concocting ice remedies from the incontinence and burn relief aisles of your local drug store while perched on a wee-wee pad—my exact discharge instructions after I delivered my first child.”

The complete Frida Mom portfolio includes:
