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.

Ingredients: 

  • 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.

Safety:

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.

    LOVE!

    Posted by Unknown on 3rd Feb 2017

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Cannot say enough good about this product.

    Posted by meghan on 4th Nov 2015

    I buy this product for EVERY new mom that I know. After using it myself after the birth of my daughter I believe no new mom should be without it. I use it as an herbal rinse after using the bathroom. It's no small thing to have a bit of comfort for mama after delivery.

    Nice herbal blend for new moms

    Posted by Richelle Jolley on 29th Jan 2015

    I provide all of my clients with the Herbal afterbirth Bath tea to use as a peri-wash postpartum (to be applied with a peri-bottle whenever they take a trip to the toilet). I have received lots of positive feedback from numerous clients, expressing how soothing it is to apply this tea onto the vulva after giving birth. The blend brings down swelling, promotes healing and prevents infection.
