“This is definitely something I would purchase to have in my hospital bag again.”
The Kin Fertility Postpartum Recovery Kit is a great kit for those who like to order from one place and have all the essentials delivered together ready for after birth. After using these products for 10 days postpartum I can honestly say I am so glad I was able to have them packed into my hospital bag.
The peri bottle has the perfect flow and I’ve been able to ensure that things stay clean down there, I ended up with a couple of stitches so it’s been great to know I am able to keep them clean with ease.
I keep the healing foam in the fridge and apply it to a pad, so far I haven’t experienced any itching during recovery and I have loved not having to prepare padsicles in advance as I just put the foam on at each change.
I first tried on the mesh underwear before giving birth to see how supportive they were and they did not disappoint, they held the pads in place and nothing slid around.
The soothing padsicles included in the kit were especially great for the 5 days I spent in the hospital, fold in half and instant ice! AND they stayed cool for the perfect amount of time. It was a relief knowing that I didn’t need to layer pads with ice packs as they are all in one!
Combined with the mesh panties, it was all held together while providing support to all the right areas.
I’ve also been using the nourishing cream every night on my belly while I’ve been feeling a bit dry post-birth. It smells divine and it’s now part of my evening self-care routine.
If I were to have any babies in the future this is definitely something I would purchase to have in my hospital bag again as I just found it so useful! It’s now also on my list of gift ideas for baby shower presents!

“I wish I had known about this type of thing with my firstborn, would have been so helpful!“
Overall I loved all of the products that came in the Kin Fertility Postpartum Recovery Kit but the stand out for me was the mesh undies.
After having an unplanned cesarean, the mesh panties were the only underwear that I wore – even two weeks postpartum I’m still wearing them.
They’ve been perfect to prevent anything from rubbing my scar as they are so stretchy and soft, and they hold my pad in really well.
I’ve been recommending them to all of my pregnant friends.
I am still taking the Postnatal Vitamin and definitely felt like I have way more energy this time around – I feel great.
The peri bottle took away the fear of wiping and any pain when going to the bathroom. And made the whole bathroom process directly after labour so much easier.
I began using the Nourishing Cream consistently throughout the last trimester of my pregnancy. The cream is lovely, fast-absorbing, light and smells amazing. I didn’t end up with any stretch marks this pregnancy.

“I don’t think I would have recovered as quickly without the padsicles”
This postpartum pack was exactly what I needed after delivering my beautiful baby boy via forceps and episiotomy. This pack is curated and considered with all the necessities to help mummas post-birth heal comfortably and discreetly.
The Peri Bottle was so simple to use for the management of postpartum hygiene and healing downstairs and took away the anxiety I had about going to the bathroom as my body heals. The flow of the water as you squeeze was super gentle but strong enough for a thorough clean.
The padcicles were my favourite! In the early days after my birth, I experienced some pretty severe perineal swelling. After receiving some pretty questionable homemade “Padcicles” in the hospital, these were a godsend when I returned home for my recovery. They were easy to use, and comfortable to sit on while providing instant soothing relief. I honestly do not believe I would have healed as quickly without these, as they helped reduce my swelling in a matter of days.
Rachael has created a great video demonstrating how the padsicles work.
I loved the relief that the Nourishing Cream gave me, particularly in the last couple of weeks from my pregnancy. As my belly rapidly stretched, I found it became super dry, itchy and uncomfortable. This lightweight cream helped to sooth my skin with minimal product, so this tub has lasted me months even though I apply it daily after I shower.
I would suggest that this pack is a very necessary “push present” for any mother post-labour. After the baby comes, a lot of the attention goes to the health and happiness of the baby and excited visitors can unfortunately not consider the mother’s healing. This is a period where mums need to be able to focus on their own healing so they are able to provide love and care to their new bub. This pack gives new mothers all the tools to do just that, both comfortably and discreetly.
Kin’s Postpartum Kit is a must-have for both your hospital bag and postnatal recovery at home.
