Haakaa Reusable Cooling Perineum Compression Pad


Soothe pelvic discomfort, perineal swelling and other aches and pains associated with childbirth with Haakaa's Cooling Perineum Pad. This pad is designed for women who have delivered vaginally or who are experiencing discomfort as a result of childbirth.

This compression pad is designed to be chilled or frozen to help relieve tenderness and pain. The pad fits inside the soft cotton sleeve, which provides a protective layer between the pad and your skin, and clips over your underwear for a secure fit. We have provided two of these sleeves so that you can swap them out regularly if you find you have heavy leakage. Additionally, this set comes with five non-woven fabric covers for the fridge or freezer, which helps to create a hygienic barrier between the pad and the rest of the items in your cold storage.

  • Flexible, reusable pad can be chilled or frozen to soothe aches and pains associated with childbirth.
  • Soft, cotton sleeves provide a layer of effective yet gentle protection between the pad and your skin.
  • Sleeves clip over your underwear for a secure fit.
  • Portable Storage Bag allows you to take your pad and sleeves anywhere.
  • BPA and phthalate-free.


Can be chilled or frozen. Only use for a maximum of 20 minutes at a time. Always test pad temperature prior to application.

Chilled: Refrigerate for at least one hour before use. Once chilled, remove pad from non-woven fabric cover and Insert into cotton sleeve before placing on your skin.

Frozen: Keep in freezer for at least one hour before use. Once frozen, remove pad from non-woven fabric cover and insert into cotton sleeve before placing on your skin. Do not apply frozen compression pads directly to the skin as this can cause ice burns.

Once the pad is inside the cotton sleeve, place it in your underwear, similar to how you would with a menstrual pad. Secure the pad to your underwear by fastening the snap buttons on either side of the cotton sleeve. Readjust if not comfortable.

Cleaning and Care

Hand wash compression pads regularly in warm soapy water. Wash cotton sleeves by hand or in a washing machine on a cold, delicate cycle. Hang to dry. During the Lochia phase your perineum pad will need cleaning after each use to help keep it hygienic. Non-woven pads are disposable; however, you can reuse them by washing gently in warm soapy water and allowing them to hang-dry. Please be aware that regular washing of the non-woven covers may compromise their integrity over time.


Check product condition regularly. Replace if product shows any damage. Keep away from sharp objects. Only soft bristle brushes or soft sponges should be used to clean compression pads. Hard scourers may scratch the surface. Do not use this product for anything other than its intended use. Store product in a cool, dry place and avoid direct sunlight. Do not forcefully squeeze or shake at any time. Do not open or puncture pads. If pads leak, dispose of immediately. For external use only, do no ingest. Do not apply to sensitive skin or open wounds. Do not fall asleep using pads. If gel comes into contact with eyes or skin, rinse thoroughly with warm water. For extreme, prolonged or chronic pain, contact your physician. This product is not a toy - keep out of reach of children and pets.

Please note: If pads are too hot or too cold for your comfort, wrap in an extra layer of fabric, e.g. a towel.
