Why might I need to hire a Valley Cushion?
Following childbirth, it is estimated that 8-10% of mothers experience perineal or perianal pain. Sitting down may be uncomfortable due to bruising or swelling of the area.
If there has been any damage during childbirth in the form of a tear or episiotomy, both the wound and any stitches which have been placed may cause pain or discomfort when sitting. Piles or haemorrhoids may also be uncomfortable after childbirth.
How does it work?
The cushion has a tapered central channel with two self-inflatable airbags either side. Unlike old-fashioned ring cushions, each side of a VALLEY cushion can be inflated and adjusted individually to suit varying pelvic widths. The user inflates these airbags to their own comfort level; this in conjunction with the central channel keeps the perineal and perianal area free from pressure allowing the user to sit comfortably.
A new waterproof 'breathable' COOLTECH cover is fitted for each new hire making the Valley cushion a hygienic choice.
