According to CDC statistics, more babies are born in the month of August!* It’s an exciting and wonderful time in mommy’s life to spend with the new baby, but unfortunately along with their new bundle of joy some women experience a not so welcome addition. Hemorrhoids may develop from all the pushing that is required in labor and childbirth.

*The summer has been the top season for births in the United States, according to records kept by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and August often wins the title as the month during which the most babies are born. In 2006, the most recent year for which statistics are available, August had the most U.S. births, just as it did in 10 of the previous 16 years, with the CDC estimating that 9 percent of all births occurred then. February had the least.

Boy do we know this in our family.  My brothers and I all have had babies within 1 year.  The last one was just born last night.  Though I did not suffer from this, I know many that have had.  When you are pregnant they are so many discomfort and you don't need this to be one of them.  

Women with hemorrhoids often suffer from burning, itching and pain. A topical local anesthetic such as RectiCare® Cream ($29.95; drugstores nationwide) helps to quickly soothe discomfort with lidocaine 5%. Plus, RectiCare comes with finger cots to promote hygienic application.

My thoughts-I did not get to sample product as I am not suffer from this.  This post is for informational purpose only.
