Herbal Afterbirth Bath

12 ounces. Makes 3-4 baths per bag.

This Herbal Afterbirth Bath can be used to aid in healing of Mom's tissues and baby's cord after birth.  A loved recipe by many this bath provides comfort and healing after the work of birth in a natural, healthy way.

When the herbal bath is brewed and added to bathtub water, it turns the water a dark yellow/brown color. The smell is really lovely. An ingredient list and preparation instructions are on the package.

The herbal bath is therapeutic for mother/baby bonding, aromatherapy, reducing perineal swelling, healing perineal lacerations, and helping with hemorrhoids.


  • Comfrey Leaf
  • Lavender Flowers
  • Shepherd's Purse
  • Uva Ursi Leaves
  • Plantain leaf
  • Red Raspberry Leaves
  • Yarrow flowers
  • Sea salt

Suggested directions:

Place 1 cup of herbs in 2 qts. of boiling water and remove from heat. Let herbs steep for 15-20 minutes. Strain and add to additional bath water in a tub being careful not to over dilute. Baby & Mom should soak for at least 20 minutes to allow healing to cord and perineum.


Herbal baths are safe for use a few hours after birth through an indefinite period. Circumstances where using the herbal bath would not be safe would be in the case of a large amount of postpartum blood loss, particularly where the mother is still faint and weak; the heat of the warm bath water can cause complications (obviously if this is the situation, the mother's care provider will likely still be present and dictating care). The only other contraindication for use would be if the mother has an allergy to one of the herbs in the bath mix. The most common allergy (though still very rare) that clients have to this bath is lavender. 

This is an In His Hands' special recipe which we blend ourselves.

    I have used this herbal afterbirth bath for my first two pregnancies and loved it both times. It smells good and also is soothing to sore areas. Planning to use it again for my third this summer!

    Used this with my first postpartum child, loved it. This is my 2nd time ordering it and look forward to our first bath postpartum with our 2nd child. More than enough for more than one bath.

    Excellent way to relax and bond with baby. Herbs are healing. I feel these are a must have for the first week or two after baby arrives.

    I've had 6 babies, and have tried baths from Amazon that are of lesser quality. This is my go to after birth bath! Quickly heals my peprineum, and heals baby's umbilical cord stump too. Thank you so much for this product!

    Seriously this stuff is incredible! I get a bag for every one I know who's about to have a baby!! I used this right after the birth of my daughter and a few times with her and alone the weeks following. I felt normal "down there" i swear the day after I had her (9lbs and 21" btw). Was no where near that when I had my son years ago. Thank you so much for this product!!!

    I LOVE this product!! It is so relaxing and really helps ease soreness, bruising and any other injuries. I recommend this to friends a lot and always make sure I have at least one bag on hand after each birth. It's simply wonderful!

    Best herbal bath, ever!

    Posted by Sara W on 4th Oct 2017

    I LOVED using this product after having my daughter. It was so nice to sit and soak in something the both smelled yummy, and also made my lady-bits feel soothed. I had 2nd degree tears, and I truly believe that using this bath helped me heal easier, and quicker. I recommend this to all of my friends and doula clients!
