The midwife who I work for has a recipe I have yet to learn for postpartum baths. She also has all of her clients continue with NORA tea.
Some things off the top of my head:
*Raw honey on any vaginal tears to assist in healing and comfort.
*Herbs from bath mixture can be refrigerated and used in Peri bottle.
*They can also be used on a sposie and frozen for comfort.
*Arnica helps with swellings- recommended routinely by many midwives.
*Placenta encapsulation helps with mood disorders and hormonal issues (such as milk supply, night sweats, hair loss)
*Drink LOTS Of water often while nursing.
*If someone is coming over, they better not step a foot on my doorstep without a meal in their hand.
*I like to just chill out and let people serve me. This was hard last time because I had other littles to care for, but I just forced myself to do it. My husband did pick up some of the slack and the house didn't fall to pieces.
