Try to keep it dry n vent as much as you can ! I used lavender oil on my stitches as nothing else helped n it did the trick! Have not used salts or taken baths as was trying to keep it dry as much as I could! Some people advice to sit on round cushions with hole in the middle so you don’t put extra pressure on stitches! I have tried everything and still took ages to heal! Lavender oil reduced inflammation n pain! But I only came up with this idea quite late therefore was struggling for months 😩

I had an episiotomy a few weeks ago. I bought a peri bottle from amazon which i will recommend to every new mum 100 times over. Fill with warm water and use it to clean each time you wee and while you are weeing. It has a long neck that you can direct where you want it. Ibuprofen and paracetamol stock up! Sit on a donut cushion. Don’t push yourself to do too much too quickly! Epsom salts baths. You can buy pads with cold packs in them from amazon. And be warned the pain was at its worst day 5 for me! Congratulations on your gorgeous girl! Xxx

My expert midwife spritz for bits is a life saver!! Also a jug for pouring water down yourself after going for a wee, and I was told to let the air get to it if possible c

I had an episiotomy and forceps, and it was so sore!! I had cool baths and put a tiny bit of dettol and a tiny bit of tea tree oil on there and although I don’t know if it helped the healing, it definitely helped with the soreness! xx
