After giving birth, your body needs to heal. Often times we are trying to function with only two to maybe four hours of sleep a day, we are trying to do the best we can that we often forget about our own self. This is where an herbal bath will help relax you and your little one, it brings relaxation and bonding.
We live in a fast paced world that when our feet hit the floor we run as fast as we can, even after giving birth. Sometimes new mommies have no choice. Historically though, woman are encouraged to at least take a 40 day rest period where they were cared for by family in order to recover after birth. Afterbirth, mom’s time was to bond with her new baby, and allow her body to fully heal. Many times new moms weren’t even expected to get out of bed. Meals were prepared for recovering mothers that were full of nutrients and increased lactation and speed healing.
In most countries they still practice caring for the mother this way. The Western-modern way with postpartum now is based on mom’s health and energy being restored after a full 6 weeks of rest. However it’s not encouraged with today’s society by spending time pampering themselves and bonding with their baby. Unfortunately there are more mothers that are so overwhelmed, frazzled, no desire to breastfeed, and the increase of postpartum depression is on the rise.
Many mothers, need the permission to take a much needed rest time to heal after the birth of their baby. Even if they are not able to take the full rest period that is encouraged, maybe we can work on healing the sensitive areas. This is why we have put together our Postpartum herbal milk baths.
