Does my pillow need a pocket?

Question: Why do I need a pillow with a pocket for recovery?

Pillows are very helpful to patients after abdominal surgery of any kind – hysterectomy, tummy tuck, c-section. Although, it may not make sense to you if you haven’t had your surgery yet, you will learn fairly quickly that coughing and sneezing can strain your tender tummy. Therefore, hold a small pillow over your incision! Use the tummy pillow as you cough or sneeze or laugh as it will support and protect your tender tummy.

Going home

Plan for your drive home from the hospital. You should bring a small pillow with you in the car. Place it between you and the seat belt for a safer and more comfortable car ride. It will feel help soothe your sore belly.

At home

Once at home, your tummy pillow is even more helpful!  You can use it to prevent pets and small children from bumping your incisions as they share the sofa with you. A tummy pillow held against your belly with gentle compression helps your incisions and tender belly from hurting as you laugh.

In bed

In bed, you’ll find a tummy pillow helpful if you are a side sleeper. Or sleep with it between your knees to keep strain off your back or hips.

The pocket on the Pocket Pillow is to hold an ice pack or a heated pack for your comfort against your tender abdominal incision/s. And the good news, 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.
