Our wonderful Postpartum Care Package was inspired by our dear Leah for her pregnancy of Rowan Sage. Brandon made a variety of remedies to help her through the difficult recovery of giving a natural birth to their son (and hopeful fifth generation herbalist), and we compiled the best together in this kit. She swears by each of them. Our collection includes Postpartum Tea, Nursing Tea, Postpartum Bath Sitz, Nipple Cream, Baby Balm and Essential Oil Aromatherapy Inhaler, which are effective as a six-headed approach to handling the difficulties following child birth. When used together, this care package helps to ease postpartum ailments, stress, anxiety and aiding fatigue, while also healing the damage child birth can have on the body.
*POSTPARTUM CARE PACKAGE [formerly New Mommy Care Package] includes (Rectangular case measures 5.5"x3.6"x1"):POSTPARTUM BATH SITZ BATH SOAK |8.9oz|
Following child birth, start a hot shallow bath with our Postpartum Bath Sitz Bath Soak (Now our Bath Sitz comes in double the size!) for repairing damage, soothing pain and inflammation, while also toning the damaged areas. We also found that this bath soak is effective for easing pain when returning to intimacy. Simply fill your bath tub 6-8 inches with hot water, then fill the included sachet bag with 2 tbsp of the bath soak blend and add 2oz of witch hazel, and simply sit and relax. This Bath Sitz Bath Soak blend is made up of organic herbs of Yarrow, Comfrey, Uva Ursi, Calendula, Plantain, and Willow, as well as Lavender and Chamomile infused Epsom Salt, Baking Soda and Dead Sea Salt. This 3oz bath soak is ideal for natural birth recovery and is sized to aid the mother for the first 3-5 days. Afterwards, a simple blend of epsom salt, essential oils and witch hazel can continue recovery.
When postpartum depression, anxiety, stress, mood swings or fatigue get the best of you, drink a cup of our Postpartum Tea, which is made up of organic Red Raspberry Leaf, Motherwort, Ashwagandha, Chamomile, Lemon Balm, Milky Oats, Skullcap and French Lavender. This tea is full of calming, adaptogenic herbs which help soothe stress, sleeplessness and ease anxiety, while working to give the body and brain what it needs to cope during this highly difficult transitionary period. During breastfeeding, when milk production is lacking to sate the baby's appetite, drink a cup of the Nursing Tea, which is a blend of milk production boosting herbs which contain many nutrients for the baby. Our Nursing Tea includes organic Blessed Thistle, Stinging Nettle, Fenugreek, Milky Oats, French Lavender, Dandelion Leaf, Red Raspberry Leaf, Alfalfa, and German Chamomile.
When stress, anxiety, hopelessness, mood swings, irritability or fatigue rears its ugly head, inhale deeply from our essential oil infused Aromatherapy Inhaler. Breathe deeply for 10 seconds, hold for 3 seconds, then exhale slowly for 10 seconds and you will notice a calming tranquility and lightness come over you. This inhaler is gorgeous smelling with essential oils of beautiful Jasmine, Lavender, exotic Ylang Ylang flower and Bergamot.
During breastfeeding, the nipples can become raw feeling, chapped and very sensitive, so to ease this ailment, we include a gentle nipple cream. A little goes a long way, so start by using a small amount following each feeding. It's baby safe, but still important to limit their exposure. This nipple cream is infused with organic Calendula Flowers and Marshmallow Root in Olive oil, Lanolin, Beeswax and Shea Butter, with no essential oils to keep it safe for infant exposure.
Last but far from least, we include our popular Baby Balm in this kit, which is a gorgeous smelling salve that's effective for calming and soothing nerves, and for sedating upset and sleepless babies, and is a versatile and gentle moisturizer for skin issues. Our formula was crafted as a natural solution for diaper rash, cradle cap and skin conditions like eczema. Our Baby Balm recipe is all organic and is safe if ingested, and is designed to be gentle yet effective for a range of infant issues. We start our Baby Balm with a heat extraction of Lavender and Calendula in organic Olive oil and Coconut oil, and melt in organic raw Beeswax and Cocoa Butter, and finish with soothing essential oils and plant extracts of Lavender, German Chamomile and Roman Chamomile.
When used together, these natural products can greatly improve the hardship that comes post-child birth. This care package may be slightly smaller than you expect (as some customers have commented in their reviews), which is due the designed use, so this kit is sized to aid the first week of recovery after a natural vaginal child birth.
