Birth Recovery Pads


So this question is mostly for the ladies who are not first time moms... My baby is due September 21 and I saw what seems to be a helpful DIY for Birth recovery pads. It’s aloe Vera and witch hazel on a pad that has been put into the freezer. It’s supposed to help ease your recovery time and irritation after birth. ANYWAY, I was just wondering if any of you had tried this in your previous birth experience? If so how well did it work?
