Relief for perineal soreness, bruising and swelling after childbirth

Chances are you’ll be sore after childbirth because of stretching, bruising and swelling, even if you don’t sustain a tear or episiotomy. It can also be used to help relieve soreness after a caesarean section (after the dressing is removed and the wound is undergoing the normal healing process). This midwife-developed bath soak is ideal for that first bath, and to use as a soak for the first few weeks after childbirth, to help aid recovery. It contains premium Epsom salts to relax tired muscles, tea tree and calendula for their anti-inflammatory properties, bergamot to soothe and relax and arnica to help reduce bruising.
