I just wanted to thank you for the WONDERFUL soothing Postpartum Sitz Bath Herbs! I had surgery (enterocele/rectocele repair) a week ago. Not only that, I ended up with a bladder infection due to the Foley catheter. I came home sore, tearful, and incontinent. Then came the yeast infection. I ended up with 11 prescriptions. Then I bought the Postpartum Sitz Bath Herbs and I've already made my third batch. Aaaahhhhh! I'm taking sitz baths and using a peri bottle to squirt the herbs onto the sore area. I'm still tender, however I am SO much more comfortable! I wish I had the herbs a week earlier! I'm going to let my surgeon know! Every woman having vaginal surgery should know that these herbs aren't just for postpartum! Thanks again! E.N.
