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.

This product is not returnable.


  • 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.

    Two weeks postpartum, I was all kinds of itchy, inflamed and irritated. This soak was soo soothing, I felt 99% better. One bag is enough for 5 sitz baths.

    Herbal Afterbirth Bath

    Posted by Mooo on 7th Jul 2020

    Excellent stuff. Used for the first time for my second birth with episiotomy. Liked it so well I ordered and used up a second package. Contents very fresh and aromatic. Good sturdy plastic bag. Didn't know what I was missing with my first birth (also had an episiotomy). Highly recommend this to anyone.

    Excellent for healing for mom and baby!

    I used this herbal bath for the first time with my FIFTH baby who was 10.5 lbs!!! It was the best and most comfortable recovery so far. My baby also had some issues with the umbilical cord site, but we took a bath together in this tea and it healed very nicely! Thank you!

    After birth herbal bath

    Posted by Amber on 14th Jan 2020

    I loved this! It smelled so good and was so relaxing to soak in. My midwife had my doula steep some immediately after my birth to be used in the spray bottle every time a used the rest room. I steeped the rest for 2 baths with baby. Will be buying this for expecting mothers as gifts!!!

    Absolutely recommend!

    my son had a very thick cord that would not shrink until it was clamped. After we took an herbal bath together each day, his cord fell off on day five! Also, he developed a bad rash with a plastic diaper we used and this herbal bath completely got rid of his rash in the first soak of about 20 minutes! The smell is great and even my husband liked it. It did wonders for my healing as well. The soreness was almost gone by the time we used this up. It's worth it!

    I loved these bath herbs. I fell asleep in the bath with these every time, and normally I am not a bath person. So incredibly relaxing!
