What are Sitz baths?

Sitz baths can be purchased from hospitals and are often available in the form of a small plastic basin that sits atop the toilet and should be filled with warm water. The principle of Sitz baths is based on hydrotherapy, whereby the warmth of the water promotes circulation in the pelvic area, thereby speeding up the healing process. A woman is recommended to sit in the basin for up to fifteen minutes or when the water becomes cool. Sitz baths are recommended immediately following delivery to soothe perineal tears, soreness, sometimes experienced as burning sensations.


What are Sitz baths used for?

Besides soothing perineum tears and soreness after delivery, sitz baths are beneficial in eliminating hemorrhoids and for soothing symptoms associated with bladder or yeast infections.
How often can sitz baths be taken?

Sitz baths can be taken as a weekly tonic treatment or used more frequently as part of a more rigorous health program.

  • Sitz baths can be used for pre or post natal irritation such as yeast infections, hemorrhoids or tearing
  • Our therapeutic bath offers healing herbs of calendula, comfrey and yarrow flowers to help promote healing and soothe mom after labour

    I was given this soak post birth highly recommended by my best friend who is a mom of three. It was single handedly the best thing I used after a difficult delivery that left me with a 4th degree tear. This soak gave me relief from the pain and discomfort I experienced. I highly recommend it!

    I used this herbal sitz once a day for 2 weeks after giving birth in combination with the cooling spray. Not only did the bath feel so good with the herbs, but it was very soothing and aided in the healing process. I will be doing the same healing process after my next pregnancy.
