Australian Birth Stories

BodyICE Woman ice and heat packs were created to help women recover post childbirth and during breastfeeding. The range was created by Olympic Champ and mum of two Lydia Lassila after the birth of her first son in 2011. The range consists of Breast Pads, designed to fit inside the bra and around nipples to provide relief from soreness associated with breast feeding, blocked milk ducts and engorgement. The breast pads are designed to conform around a breast pump and when heated can help ease the flow of milk and blocked milk ducts.
