Maia Mum Peri Wash Bottle
Peeing can sting after giving birth, tears or no tears. Using a peri bottle dilutes your urine which takes away that awful sting and helps to prevent infection.
Use the peri bottle every time you pee until you’re feeling OK again down there (best used for at least a week or 2 we think!)
Instructions: Fill with warm or cold water (depending on preference).
Hold bottle upside down, aim nozzle at perineum area and gently squeeze before peeing to get the stream hitting the right area.
Continue the stream for the duration of urination and feel the relief it gives!
What's Included: 1 x 300ml BPA free plastic Peri bottle + 1 x waterproof travel bag
Top Tip: Once you’ve finished with it, either put it away for next time, sterilize and pass to a friend or chuck it in your travel bag and use as a mini bidet when you find yourself in country where toilet paper isn’t all the rage!
Maia Mum Postpartum Underwear
After giving birth the last thing you want to be worrying about is your underwear. We’ll take care of that!
Maia Mum Postpartum Underwear is high waisted, soft, comfortable and stretchy. They are everything you need and more after giving birth, suitable for use after all births.
C-sections: the waistband sits higher than the incision so they won’t irritate you while you’re healing.
These are designed for short-term use and are washable, so chuck them in a laundry bag on a delicate cycle so that you can use them again (can be washed around 10-15 times).
Made from: Nylon/spandex blend
What's included: 4 pairs of super soft, short-term use Maia Mum Underwear
Available in 3 sizes: Small (6-10), Medium (10-14) and Large (14-18)
Top tip: Keep a pair or two in your nappy bag for the first few weeks in case you need to do any stealth changes of your own!
