Many new mums experience perineal pain following birth, and this can affect the way they are able to feed and care for their baby. The cushion's purpose is to provide relief from the discomfort of sitting after an episiotomy, tearing, stitches, bruising or any perineal trauma. The Valley Cushion was scientifically designed as an alternative to the ring cushion which has proved to be unsatisfactory over the years. It has two adjustable inflatable bags positioned either side of a unique central channel, allowing you to adjust the level of support, whilst ensuring that sore areas are kept from painful pressure.  Speak to your midwife, or ring the NCT line to be put in touch with your local Abingdon agent: 0300 330 0700
