Pocket Tummy Pillow is Perfect

Bring this to the hospital with you and you will discover why this is one of our best-selling items for your surgery recovery.

Why a tummy pillow?

Use the tummy pocket pillow on day one of your surgery supporting your abdomen when you cough or sneeze.  You will place it between you and the seatbelt on your ride home from the hospital. In bed or lounging on the couch, you should use this pillow to support your tummy as you lay on your side. Adding the cold/heat pack to the pillow adds even more comfort to your tender belly.

We think you will love a beautiful tummy pillow as you recover from surgery.

The Tummy Pocket Pillow has a contrasting pocket and is made from a variety of beautiful color choices. And don’t forget, this tummy pocket pillow includes 2 Hot/Cold Packs.

Tummy Pocket Pillow FAQ

How important are pillows to hysterectomy recovery?

Pillows are an important aspect of your hysterectomy recovery. We recommend 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. Prevent pets and small children from bumping your incisions as you lounge on the sofa at home.

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.

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.

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!

In the study published this month, Taylor and his co-authors — from the Canberra Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Clinic in Australia and other institutions — looked at women who had given birth and who were planning on having a tummy tuck to see if the procedure could help with pain and urinary incontinence.

They studied 214 women who had an average of 2.5 deliveries and were an average age of 42 years old.

Before having tummy tuck surgery, they completed questionnaires assessing back pain and experiences with urinary incontinence and how both impacted their daily life.
