Post subject: DON'T sit on the swimming ring!
Just joined and wanted to offer some advice.... Do Not sit on that swimming ring after giving birth.
This is my second pregnancy and I won't be making the same mistake twice. My nurse told me to sit on a blow up swimming ring to ease the pain in the days after giving birth. Well, when you think about it when you sit on a ring where does all the pressure go????? ANS: Right down below! It made the pain worse.
Also a little tip.. I found out when i was in hospital. Soak those breast pads and put them in the freezer for a while. When they are cold but them in your underwear to relieve the pain.
Hope this helps!
