    Witch Hazel Pads for Postpartum

    I can't seem to find witch hazel maternity/postpartum pads (for my hospital bag) in Hong Kong. Does anybody know where to find them? If not, I suppose I could just buy witch hazel separately and put a bit on the pads.

    But I have been looking at iherb and can't figure out which witch hazel to buy - they have toner/astringent, but that can't be what we're supposed to use "in that area," is it? Confused.

    Oh, thanks - no, I didn't see those when I searched. Can you actually use them "down there?" All the reviews for for beauty purposes.

    Wow! I didn't even know this existed. Think most people use water, ice packs, and Vaseline to relieve discomfort.

    Oh, witch hazel pads or ointment are a "must-have" for a woman's hospital bag in America - I think in Australia, too.

    I bought the T.N Dickinsons haemmarhoidal pads off iHerb, worked really well! I also bought Earth Mama New Mama bottom spray, also from iHerb, which has witch hazel and a few other things. That was really great and I would definitely get it again next time! Was great to have something I could just spray down there every time I pee'd!!
