If you are planning a vaginal birth, or have just HAD a vaginal birth, perineal spray is an absolute must. (As are padsicles, rest, peri-bottles, and nutritious foods to speed up healing & recovery!) Our 4th Trimester Perineal Spray can be used within the first week postpartum, and as long as needed, to support healing of tears and to relieve discomfort of the perineal tissues.
I rarely find first-time Moms who are adequately briefed, about the pain and discomfort of the immediate postpartum period - whether it's bruising and tearing of vaginal & perineal tissue, cesarean incision pain/intestinal gas, afterpains during nursing as the uterus contracts, or just feeling like you've been hit by a truck because you've gone through many hours of labour with no sleep.
As a birth and postpartum doula, I prepare my clients prenatally with a postpartum planning session, because postpartum is usually something that they've put little thought into, beyond cribs and carseats and a baby photoshoot. Supplies for the postpartum period is one of the things that I discuss, including the advantages of any perineal spray and making #padsicles
ahead of time for those who are planning to have a vaginal birth.
Our spay can also be used to make your own padsicles, so you don't have to buy the witch hazel and aloe vera separately.
Witch Hazel is renowned for it's gentle toning and astringent qualities and is often recommended on it's own for general postpartum healing and postpartum hemorrhoids. Aloe vera is added for it's tissue healing properties.
Essential oils were selected specifically for their gentle astringent, tissue healing, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and cooling properties, including Frankincense, Roman Chamomile and Clary Sage.
And when you're done healing from birth, this spray can be used as a toner (yes, really!). Sold locally in Grande Prairie at Studio 101, or by order.
