Since mothers go through a drastic cooling of the body after giving birth, the goal is to continue to warm the mother back to health and wholeness. Applying gentle heat to areas of need will protect the mother’s internal heat and increase circulation to the area of a soreness, swelling, or laceration. The additional circulation can best aid in the healing process. Applying ice is only recommended if the mother has extreme swelling or other medical needs as directed by your doctor or midwife.
This herbal sitz bath has been prepared to assist mothers who have had a vaginal birth to aid in healing of the perineum after delivery. Mothers who have abrasions or tears are often encouraged to use a peri bottle or sitz bath to help relieve discomfort and keep this area clean. The herbs are used to make a tea which can then be added to your sitz bath or peri bottle to sooth the body. This sitz bath is prepared form organic herbs selected from Mountain Rose Herbs. The following herbs have been used in a customized blend to support and sooth a new mother back to health.
