How We Started
When I was pregnant with my second baby, I knew I would need some sort of cooling relief for the days after delivery (ouch!) and set about trying to find the perfect item. After lots of searching, I discovered the very clever Instant Perineal Cold Packs, which are very popular in the USA, in fact, they’re so amazing, they’re regularly given out at the hospital to new mums.
The first hurdle I encountered was simply trying to purchase the pads - they weren’t available in the U.K. This wasn’t acceptable to me, so... during my maternity leave, I found a great manufacturer and set up First Days Maternity Supplies.
Our first product was indeed the Perineal Cold Pack, which i’m really pleased to be able to supply! I am always on the lookout for finding other USEFUL products, specifically for women who are pregnant or in the postpartum period and have also sourced contoured breast pads, amazing large peri bottles, loads of goodies from the USA and some of the gentlest soap you will ever find, created our own 100% natural nipple balm and have some other super exciting products in the pipeline, watch this space!
We know that all the attention usually goes to the new baby, so we put all our attention in to things for Mum - she's the most important person. If we can provide something that makes her more comfortable, we're happy!
If you have any wonderful ideas, or have a list of products you'd like to see, please let me know!
