I'm a newbie to this board and wish I would have found it three years ago.

For our second child she bought an inexpensive coccyx cushion for her tailbone before the baby was born and it made a huge difference in her recovery. Wish we would have known about it earlier. Anyway, I wanted to share some advice for new parents. (Hint to new dads: it is your job to make sure that the mom's are pampered and comfortable).
FYI - Here is the one we bought:
