How To Get Essential Postpartum Soothing With A Sitz Bath

Many new moms know that sitz baths are beneficial and recommended during those first postpartum weeks, but they may not know how to do one. Learning how to have a sitz bath isn’t difficult, it just takes a little time and the right supplies.

After new moms master how to do a sitz bath once it becomes a quick and convenient soothing at-home treatment they can use again and again. The steps to achieve this essential postpartum self-care via a sitz bath are:

Find the right portable bath

Finding the right portable sitz bath is the first step to enjoying the soothing experience of a soak. A portable sitz bath will be able to fit right over your toilet bowl or seat, giving new moms a comfortable place to soak that will also be quick and easy to clean. After the sitz soaking is through, a portable sitz bath will allow you to simply tip the portable unit back to empty the water directly into the toilet bowl to be flushed away.

Fill up the bath

Once the portable bath is placed on the toilet, it’s time to fill it with warm water. The holes in the back of the portable bath prevent spilling out of the toilet bowl, so new moms don’t need to worry about making a mess. Once the bath is filled with warm water, one can sit and soak for around 15 to 20 minutes to get the full soothing experience.

Try adding salts or soaks

A sitz bath may be taken with warm or cool water alone, or soaks can be added into the mix for an extra comforting experience. To add a soak to your portable sitz bath unit, simply use about 1 tablespoon of soak per gallon of water, wait for the soak to dissolve, and sit for around 15 to 20 minutes to enjoy.

Create a full-body relaxation experience

Having a sitz bath is a little much appreciated alone time for new moms. ( If as a mom can you can find any!!!) During this time, a new mom needs to focus on soothing the parts of the body that work hardest during childbirth in the sitz bath, or they can turn this time into an opportunity into a bit of me time. While sitting in the sitz bath, one can enjoy reading a favorite book, playing a game on a tablet or smartphone, they might decide to do an at-home facial while they sit, or just sit back and relax.
