1 x Mama's After Pains Relief (50ml)
This Naturopath formulated herbal tincture contains antispasmodic and relaxant herbs aimed at the smooth muscles of the uterus.
Afterpains (also known as involution) involve the cramping and discomfort of the uterus as it contracts and returns to its pre‐pregnancy size. These afterpains help the uterus become smaller so as to minimise blood loss.
Unfortunately, afterpains are particularly worse for women that have had more than one baby. They also intensify during breastfeeding in those early days postpartum. This is because breastfeeding stimulates oxytocin production and oxytocin helps causes the uterus to contract.
Mama's After Pains Relief can be taken straight after the birth and continued as needed. Pack in your hospital bag or have as part of your postpartum care kit.
Contains: Cramp Bark, Black Cohosh, Motherwort, Skullcap
Suggested dose: 20-40 drops diluted in a little water or juice, 3-5 x day.
Suitable for breastfeeding mothers.
50ml (enough to last up to 1 week, dose dependent)
