Ok, so a week or so back, I was browsing online midwife/homebirth supply stores and came across one I had never seen before.....it had those frozen gel-maxi pads that you can get in the hospital, which I have never seen ANYWHERE else.....and now, I can't seem to find the site again!!! Help! Does anyone know the site I am thinking of? It was a smaller site, I would say more towards selling to midwives, it had dopplers and "medical" stuff like blood drawing stuff in addition to herbs and pads and stuff, etc.<br>
Can someone point me back to that site, or another site where they sell those pads?<br>
(beating my head for not just buying some on the spot....)

I ordered my birth kit from Cascade Health Care Products. They are just the best. Their website is <a href="http://www.1Cascade.com" target="_blank">www.1Cascade.com</a> They have those instant cold pads. I ordered 6 six of those. They also sell tons of other great things too.

<a href="http:///www.inhishands.com/" target="_blank">http:///www.inhishands.com/</a> fits your description. They have the OB cold packs, in addition to the other things you mentioned. I ordered from them last week and got my stuff in like 2 days!! (Though I'm in the same state, so I know that's part of it.)

I've used the site: <a href="http://www.midwifesupplies.com/" target="_blank">http://www.midwifesupplies.com/</a> which offeres common supplies and kits that midwives use. It has a sister site <a href="http://www.everythingbirth.com" target="_blank">http://www.everythingbirth.com</a> that helps provide birthing aids to moms and dads. Hope this helps!

This site also has them, plus PAGES of custom birth kits. I love this site! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Actually, I prefer the homemade cold packs....they are so easy to make, so much cheaper, you can have as many as you want, and you can use any ingredients you like! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
Take whatever sitz/post partum herbs you prefer and make a strong tea. Get a package of your favorite disposable sanitary pads (I like the ones that are designed for plus-sizes--they are great for post partum) and a large medicine syringe, turkey baster, or something (what worked perfectly for me is a clean nasal bulb syringe!) and use it to apply the tea to the center of the pads. Prolly a couple Tbs per pad.<br><br>
Turn the pads onto their sides, on a cookie sheet, and curve into a C-shape. Freeze them in this shape, then when they are frozen solid, put them in a large ziploc bag.<br><br>
I think I did 2 dozen last time, and not only are they so soothing, but the herbs add to the soothing/healing properties, too! HTH!

I got some of those cold gel packs from everythingbirth.com, then I found out that cold is not so good, warm is better so I got there after care herb blend which I will make a tea from and soak some towels in it for application.<br><br>
Good luck,<br>

I like everythingbirth.com and have my birth kit there. The larger birth supply place I used to work for and can't say much nice about the owner's feelings on homebirth midwives.
