Preparing for my postpartum journey has looked a little different this pregnancy. This time around we have decided to do a home birth so that means a little more preparing on my end! I do not get the perks of the hospital handing out the immediate postpartum care packages that I am used to with my previous pregnancies. One thing that I wanted to make sure to have on hand after delivery was padisicles!

For my first delivery, I ended up tearing in two places and had a lot of swelling, like A LOT!! The frozen padisicles that the hospital handed out were amazing at soothing that area and providing some relief the first few days recovering.

I decided to look up how to make these padisicles at home and stock that freezer up! It is very easy to do and takes maybe a half hour!

Here is what you will need to make your own DIY Padisicles at home:
