We love the Tummy Pocket Pillow

Not only does the Tummy Pocket Pillow come in handy during your hysterectomy recovery – but they come in fun, exciting fabric color choices to encourage you and hopefully – make you smile.

We regularly get in new fabric choices – but they do sell out quickly. If you see one that you want, grab it before it is sold out. We never know if the fabric choices will be repeated again – or not!

How important are pillows to surgery recovery?

Pillows are an important aspect of your hysterectomy recovery and other surgeries like C-section, tummy tuck, hernia repairs. It is recommended that you hold a small pillow (like our Pocket Pillow) over your incision as you cough or sneeze which provides support to your tender belly. Additionally, place a small pillow between your tender incision area and the seatbelt on any car ride to make a safer and more comfortable car ride. We suggest leaving a pillow in the car for this purpose. Once you are at home, your tummy pillow can also be used to prevent pets and small children from bumping your incisions.

Why does this pillow have a pocket?

The pocket on the Hysterectomy Pocket Pillow is to hold an ice pack or a heated pack for your comfort against your tender abdominal incision/s. Our Pocket Pillow comes with 2 cold/hot packs. We send you two so you have one to use while the other is in the freezer or being warmed in the microwave. When this particular tummy pillow was developed, the HysterSisters let us know they were using our cold/hot packs between them and their pillow. “Genius!” we thought! And so, our next generation of tummy pillow added the pocket for the cold/hot packs.

How do I wash my Pocket Pillow?

Remove inserted pillow from the cover. Wash the cover and the pillow separately in cold water, delicate cycle. Tumble dry low or hang to dry.

What is the pillow made from?

The pillow insert is 100% polyester fiberfill. The Pocket Pillow cover is 100% cotton.

What is the Pocket Pillow size?

The Hysterectomy Pocket Pillow is approximately 13″ x 13″. The cover is handmade and may vary slightly in exact sizes.

You are out of my favorite fabric. Will it be back in stock?

Our fabric choices change regularly based on current availability from our vendor. Once a fabric choice is out of stock, we may not see it again. Order your favorite when you see it – as we have no way of knowing how long it will remain in inventory!

The Brilliant Pocket Binder

Years ago – we offered only the abdominal binder and suggested to our customers that they use a cold pack between the binder and their tummy for added cooling relief. It was a no brainer for women that needed compression and some cooling relief.

It was a stroke of genius that we partnered with the manufacturer, asking them to create another binder for us – WITH a pocket just to hold a cold pack (or a warming pack) because we knew it would be easier to manage with those slippery cold packs that liked to slide through and only the floor when moving about.

And so – our Pocket binder is perfect – we think! It comes with 2 cold/hot packs that you can freeze or warm to use as you need.

Can I put the Cold Pack beneath my regular Abdominal Binder?

We are often asked if the Cold/Hot pack can be placed between the abdominal binder and your tummy. The answer is simple – YES!

In fact, before the Pocket binder was created, we often suggested placing the cold pack next to the skin (wrapped in a cloth) with the abdominal binder snuggly placed around the abdomen. It works – providing cool relief to tender incisions while providing gentle compression overall.

We think you will agree – its a great way to use your abdominal binder!
