I need to prep! PP aftercare

I'm still on the early side, but I love to research for the best items needed as well as scout out good prices, but I need to get together my list of PP care.

I would like some suggestions for herbal baths, teas, soaks, etc.

Also.. In the (hopefully small) chance I may need a c-section, what PP care is needed then?

Trying to keep everything as organic/holistic as possible! Thanks

Re: I need to prep! PP aftercare

In addition to herbal sitz baths (If you google you can even make your own, there are some decent recipes out there. This would probably be the cheapest option if you buy the ingredients in bulk) I would highly recommend a healing salve for any tears or skidmarks. Most of them are pretty great with hemorrhoids as well.

My favorite place to produce shop/browse for PP supplies is They have a good selection and in my experience (and that of a few friends) good customer service as well.

I second Precious Arrows that's where I got my birth kit this time around. Last time my MW went through there bath mix was fabulous!

I bought a ton of extra peri cold packs because they helped a ton and I hate frozen peas and those gel packs. I also got a bottle of Happy Bottom Mama Spray.
