Ahhhh, good ‘ole postpartum perineal care. A topic we all love to think and talk about, yes?
Allow me to break the ice. Over the last few days when I was pregnant, (a whole 24 hours ago), I was riding the crazy bus for a wee bit. A tad bit more than usual that is.
You know, cleaning everything in sight, sewing layette like mad and making sure every. Last. Onsie. Is. Washed. Etc., Etc.
Amongst these nestpreatory (that’s a gooder, hmm?) urges and happenings, was the preparation of my birthing kit and gathering items for my own personal care after birthing.
After allowing myself to be gouged during this preparation last time – I chose to make as many of the products I need myself.
One of my favourites being an herbal sitz tea bath. Follow me after the jump for a quick and easy DIY on how to make your own.
Often we forget about ourselves and our own needs will be after birthing…What are your favourite natural postpartum things?
