    Hi everyone, new member here. I am a nurse in postpartum and am curious about something. Our unit used to give our moms rice socks that they could heat up in the microwave to help with cramping, and also incisional pain; however, JCAHO and risk management made us get rid of those. We now have these disposable warm packs, but they barely get warm and only last for about an hour. Our patients have really not liked them so far and we go through them so fast. What do other places use?

    Also, just curious about what you use for ice packs for perineal swelling right after delivery? (We literally put ice in a plastic bag).

    Thanks for the info!
