Looking for a Baby Shower Gift?
February 06, 2019
Are you or a loved one expecting in 2019? Getting ready for a new baby is an exciting, but often overwhelming time. There seems to be a never-ending list of items that a new mom needs – blankets, clothes, toys, furniture, and accessories. However, most of the typical baby shower gifts are for the new baby. But, what about the new mom—what does she need?
In our experience at Motherlove, we find that new moms often aren’t given the full picture of what pregnancy and labor can include. No one really wants to talk about hemorrhoids, sore perineal muscles, or tearing during childbirth, but they can all happen and it is best to be prepared! That is why we often recommend Sitz Bath Spray as a great, and inexpensive, item for a new mom.
Sitz Bath Spray contains herbs known for their soothing properties—witch hazel, yarrow, and uva ursi. These herbs work together to help slow bleeding after childbirth and relieve sore perineal muscles. In comparison to a traditional sitz bath, Motherlove’s Sitz Bath Spray is a great option for new moms who want relief on-the-go. Simply spritz yourself as often as desired and go about your day. Or, for a soothing and cooling effect, spritz a pad with a little water and Sitz Bath Spray, put it in the fridge or freezer, and wear postpartum. Your body will thank you!
