Heal After Birth – Perineal Care and Sitz Bath

A sitz bath is a warm, therapeutic bath used to heal and cleanse the area around the perineum (the space between the genitals and anus). It can be especially useful following vaginal birth and tearing/episiotomy to aid healing and reduce discomfort.

The term “Sitz Bath” comes from the German word for “seat”.
