Why we made this

Delivering a baby is a superhuman effort, but every hero needs a sidekick. For you, that’s us.

We’re here to support you through every step of your pregnancy journey.

We won’t sugarcoat it: going to the loo may be painful while you’re pregnant and after you’ve given birth. During postpartum, you may also experience haemorrhoids and perineal tearing from pushing during delivery.

But, there is a solution.

The Sitz Bath was designed to make it easy for you to get relief from pregnancy and postpartum pain from the comfort of your own home, even if you don’t have a bathtub!

The Sitz Salts contain anti-inflammatory Epsom Salts and essential oils to relieve constipation, shrink haemorrhoids and reduce perineal swelling and itchiness. 

Tears

85-90% of first-time mums will experience tearing as the baby's head squeezes through. Stitches are often required. [1]

Soreness

Aches and pain after delivery can linger for days or weeks.

Swelling

A common response to the goings-on down there. Swelling will ease within a few months.

Itching

Healing scars around the vagina can also be a little itchy. This is easily relieved.

Haemorrhoids

Veins in the rectum can become swollen and sore after pushing. Haemorrhoids affect around 43% of women after birth. [2]

Ask us anything

Seriously, our experts have all the answers.

Is a Sitz Bath useful after C-section births?

After a C-section, your vagina may feel discomfort from labour and pain can stick around for the first two to six weeks after the operation.

A Sitz Bath can be beneficial to relieving vaginal and pelvic pain, healing the vagina and helping you relax. You should only take a Sitz Bath after your incision has healed and your doctor says it's okay. In most cases, the incision takes about three weeks to heal.

How often should I take a Sitz Bath?

Some new mums take a Sitz Bath daily to cleanse their perineum area using Sitz Salts while others only take a Sitz Bath when they are experiencing pain or just want to relax.

If you have had stitches or a tear, experts recommend at least one Sitz Bath a day for the first two weeks.

How do take a Sitz Bath?

1. Set the mood: You’ll be here for a while, so treat yourself. Prepare your bathroom so you can take your time and relax - music, candles, a nice book, a face mask.

2. Secure the tub: Place the Sitz Tub on the rim of your toilet and make sure it is firmly in place and won’t move around.

3. Fill the tub: Fill your tub with ~10cm of water. It should be nice and warm, but not hot enough to cause burns or discomfort, especially to tears. Pro tip:

4.Test the water on your wrist, where your skin is the thinnest and most sensitive.

5. Salt the tub: Mix the water with 100g of Sitz Salt for added relief and calming aromas.

6. Soak it up: Now for the relaxing part. Sit down and soak your perineum in the bath for 15 to 20 minutes, making sure your perineal area is fully covered.

7. Dry yourself: When you’re ready, slowly get up and dry yourself. Ideally, you air dry, but if that’s not possible, gently pat yourself down with a towel. Do not scrub or rub the perineum, as this may cause pain and irritation.

8. Clean and store away: And voila! Clean your tub and store away for next time.

What are the Sitz Salts made of?

All natural, vegan, cruelty free and paraben free ingredients:
Magnesium Sulfate (Epsom Salt), Dead Sea Salt, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Bark/Leaf/Twig Extract, Glycerin, Lavender Essential Oil, Grapefruit Essential Oil, Rosemary Essential Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Parfum.

How do I know when to call my doctor?

It’s normal to experience some pain and discomfort while you recover from delivery, and it’s a good idea to ask your doctor or midwife about what you can expect. Postpartum symptoms tend to improve each day, but if you find your symptoms are worsening, then give your doctor a call.
