After Birth Stitches and Ways to Speed Up the Postpartum Healing Process

After Birth Stitches and Ways to Speed Up the Postpartum Healing Process

Bringing a new life into the world is a beautiful and transformative experience, but it can also come with some physical discomforts, especially if you've had stitches after giving birth. These stitches, typically required after a vaginal birth or an episiotomy, aid in the healing process but can cause soreness, swelling, and discomfort. To help ease your postpartum recovery and promote healing, there are several effective strategies you can employ to speed up the postpartum healing process.

Rest and Gentle Movement:

Stay horizontal! Rest is crucial for allowing your body to heal after childbirth. Ensure you prioritise sufficient rest and sleep whenever possible. Additionally, gentle movements such as short walks can enhance blood circulation and promote healing. However, always listen to your body and don't push yourself too hard

Stay Hydrated and Eat Nutritious Meals:

Proper hydration and nourishment are essential for postpartum recovery. Drinking plenty of water helps maintain healthy bowel movements and aids in tissue repair. Focus on consuming a well-balanced diet rich in nutrients, vitamins, and minerals to support healing and boost your energy levels.

Gently clean the area and practise proper wound care:

Taking care of your stitches is essential for optimal healing. The Noonie Cleanse and Soothe spray provides gentle cleansing and soothing relief for your perineum (the area of skin between the opening of the vagina and the anus). When the skin is too sensitive to touch, this gentle natural spray cleanser effectively removes impurities and cools tender areas, keeping your perineum clean.
It sprays upside down, so you can easily mist your noonie from any position. Just spray and rinse leftover impurities with water or gently pat.
In addition to the Cleanse and Soothe Perineal Spray, consider using Noonie Instant-cooling maternity pads. Simply apply the padsicle to the perineal area for a refreshing and cooling sensation.
