1 in 3 Aussie mums bring their baby into the world via C-section. 
C-sections can be a bit daunting even when planned. After all, it’s a major surgery no matter how you shake it.
We’ll be here for you on the other side with your recovery essentials ready to go.
Our C-Section Recovery Kit is complete with high-rise Mesh Panties, the Belly Band and the Nourishing Cream for scars and stretch marks.
Together, the trio protects and heals your wound while supporting separated abdominal muscles.
8 Mesh Panties, Belly Band & Nourishing Cream
Kin's Mesh Panties are high-rise postpartum briefs that sit above and out of the way of your incision for maximum comfort as you heal.
Designed for the postpartum period
Soft, stretchy, and breathable
Keeps maxi-pads and Soothing Padsicles in place
The Belly Band gives your abdomen the TLC it needs, targeting compression where you need it most – around your incision and separated abdominal muscles.
Hot tip: Use the Belly Band as a protective barrier when using heat packs to soothe post-surgery pain.
Reduces post-operation swelling
Lightweight and breathable
Our concentrated belly butter blend is formulated to promote wound recovery and reduce scarring. It's powered by Gotu Kola , Cyclopentasiloxane and vitamin B5 to aid healing of the skin, and Witch Hazel to reduce the appearance of scars and firm up postpartum skin.
Reduces appearance of scars and stretch marks
Moisturises and relieves itchiness
Promotes skin elasticity
Pain and discomfort after surgery is expected for a few days when your anaesthetic wears off and the cells around the incision begin to form new tissues. You may experience mild cramping, light bleeding, itching as well as numbness during your recovery.
Two muscles that run down the middle of your stomach can separate during pregnancy. This is called diastasis recti. Separation will usually go back to normal by the time your baby is 8 weeks old. 
Swelling after C-section (aka edema) is caused by extra fluid in tissues such as the face, ankles, hands, and feet or around the incision area. Intravenous (IV) fluid can also trigger swelling after a C-section delivery.
C-sections can cause scarring after the incision heals. The scar itself is harmless, however it is advised that you keep your wound clean to avoid infection and minimise stress from excess movement.
Weight gain, a growing belly and hormonal changes in pregnancy can cause the middle layer of the skin to be stretched and broken along the stomach, upper thighs and breasts. Stretch marks are completely normal and occur in 8 in 10 women.
