Why we made this

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

But, there is a solution. The Sitz Salts was formulated to be the all-in-one solution to save you through pregnancy and postpartum. 

The Sitz Salts contain anti-inflammatory Epsom Salts that relieve constipation, shrink haemorrhoids, reduce perineal swelling and nip itchiness in the bud (or in this case, butt).
 
Infused with natural Coconut Oil and Sweet Almond Oil to deeply moisturise the skin, the Sitz Salts relieve itchiness from a stretching belly and perineal stitches while working with Witch Hazel and Lavender Oil to fight bacteria and prevent infection while you heal. 

Lavender Oil also serves as a mood-booster to improve sleep and gives you the calm you need as you transition into this new chapter. [3]

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

Mild itching and inflammation is common in pregnancy due to the increased blood supply to the skin and the skin being stretched as your baby grows. Healing scars around the vagina can also be a little itchy.

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.

Can I use the Sitz Salts after C-section births?

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 use the Sitz Salts?

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 you make 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 with music, candles, a nice book or a face mask – you deserve it.

2. If you’re using the Sitz 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: Test the water on your wrist, where your skin is the thinnest and most sensitive.

4. Salt the tub: Mix the water with 100g of Sitz Salt for added relief and calming aromas. If you’re taking a large bath, use 200g of Sitz Salt.

5. 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.

6. 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.

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

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.
