Easing Back Pain in Pregnancy with the Help of Deep Freeze

Tuesday, 3 October 2017

I am now 25 weeks pregnant with our third little bump, another beautiful girly who we are so excited to meet when January comes around! The third (and thankfully final) trimester is so close now, and I have to admit things are quickly becoming tougher. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love being pregnant! The kicks, hearing the heartbeat and preparing all of those teeny tiny newborn clothes. But pregnancy for me also comes with some not so enjoyable symptoms.

The biggest one that I've suffered through all three of my pregnancies now, is back ache. It starts off as a dull ache in the background, but quickly becomes something that really affects my day. I'm now suffering terribly, and with a preschooler and a whirlwind toddler to look after throughout the day, it's tough!


Apparently I'm not alone though, and a staggering 98% of expectant mothers will suffer from muscular back pain at some stage during their pregnancy*. This is usually down to a number of factors such as additional weigh, body changes and I know I've personally suffered more since having an epidural during my first labour.

There aren't many things you can take during pregnancy to ease aches and pains, but thankfully Deep Freeze have your back (excuse the pun!), when it comes to muscular back pain. Applying their Pain Relief Cold Gel or one of their Pain Relief Cold Patches, can provide fast-acting cooling relief to the affected area of the back. What's better is their both drug-free, so you don't have to worry about any harm coming to you or baby.



I've found the Pain Relief Patches so handy to use recently, especially as I can pop one one and quickly continue with whatever it is I'm doing. The relief is instant and there's no mess, which is ideal when you have other little ones around. They last for up to 3 hours as well - although I found they did need replacing sooner when the pain is particularly bad.

I'm hoping with the help of these products, and by trying to relax as much as possible over these last few weeks of pregnancy, I can keep my back ache at least to a minimum. And thankfully these products are perfect for breastfeeding afterwards too, so I'll definitely be keeping them close by!

  6. I loved Deep Freeze and had to use a lot with my first as my back was so bad. Much nicer smell than Deep Heat.

  9. I had back pain as a result of SPD so not sure if this would have helped me ans it was bone misalignment. My mum suffers from a bad back so will show her this range of products
