    herbal afterbirth bath

    Posted by Libby Austin on 1st Nov 2017

    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!

    Herbal bath

    Posted by Robin on 19th Sep 2017

    Was skeptical about the herbal bath actually benefitting me but considering this was my first natural birth I gave it a try. Boy am I happy I did! I have only soaked once so far and it did my bottom justice, it helped with tenderness and swelling, and to top it off my baby's cord healed in 3 days(this may be the norm but this is my third baby and my previous two cords took a week if not a little longer)

    It's amazing, I didn't use any of the numbing sprays or icebacks bc this was all I needed after my second child, can't wait to use it this time around and it smells like heaven

    A friend of mine gave me her leftover bath herbs for my third birth (first homebirth). I had never used anything like this, and wasn't sure if I would. I became very depressed after giving birth and while this bath isn't a cure, it really helped me to feel nurtured for a little while. I took the herbal baths with my baby and for a while each day, my sadness and troubles stepped aside and I just felt safe and warm and close to my baby. I have ordered them again to use after giving birth to baby #4 soon. Honestly, they smell so good (not overwhelming, just soothing) I might keep them on-hand from now on! I also think they would be good for after exercise or any hard day.

    I loved having a herbal postpartum bath in these herbs with my fresh new baby. It is very relaxing and the smell is nice.

    Love this!

    Posted by Melissa D. on 31st May 2016

    When I deliver at home, I always know I'm in transition/close to delivery when I smell this brewing on the stove. It's such a happy smell because I know the end is near and I'll soon be holding my precious baby. And when the baby's finally born we get to take our first bath together in this. It helps heal momma & baby's umbilical cord. I love this product, 1- because of it's healing properties, and 2- because it recalls to mind happy memories of birth and baths with baby. There's so many other products out there for this, but I will always purchase my Afterbirth Bath from In His Hands.

    Wonderful gift for new moms!

    I have included these herbs in a few post-natal care packages, and every time, my new mommies have raved about this item the most! No matter how your birth goes, this is a must!

    Used this after my last home birth and will be using it again after this birth! Really helped sooth after birth and helped slow bleeding down. This was the first thing on my birth supply list!
