You Will Need a Tummy Pillow

You’ll need a tummy pillow – Hysterectomy Recovery Tip

You’ve probably heard from other women about the need for a tummy pillow after your hysterectomy. But you may wonder “why?”.

The tummy pillow is used from the first day, supporting your abdomen when you cough or sneeze. You place it between you and the seatbelt on your ride home from the hospital. In bed or lounging on the couch, you will use this pillow to support your tummy as you lay on your side.

In other words, the tummy will be your constant companion for a while. It comforts and protects your tummy.

We’ve added a pocket to the tummy pillow to hold a cold pack. This provide extra comfort with an ice pack against your tender, swollen incision.

Our customers love the Pocket Tummy Pillow. We think you will, too!

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!

Just have to tell you – I love the Pocket Pillow

From a Customer: I love the Pocket Pillow!

I bought this pillow along with the Hysterectomy prep set and wondered if I would need it. I did! I brought it to the hospital and used it there to help prop myself up. The nurses even kept my cold packs frozen for me! On the drive home, the pillow was my companion and cushioned my 30 minute ride home. I kept it with me everywhere in the house. Perfect. I bought a purple one! It cheered me up!

Just have to rave about this product set the Hysterectomy Prep Set. I bought it for my own surgery and especially loved having the mesh panties for those early days after surgery. The best thing in the set was the binder with the pocket. Those cold packs helped my tender tummy so much. I didn’t realize how much compression would help – but it did! Thank you for this product!

We are so glad you loved them and they were helpful to you! Thanks for sharing it with us!
