How To Make Healing Postpartum Pads

Natural Creation’s Postpartum Wellness Tea contains the healing herbsCalendula and Comfrey. These Herbs are known for their ability to repair and rejuvenate skin cells, making them ideal for healing after childbirth. Icing your perineum after birth can help bring down swelling and numb discomfort.

Here is how to make healing frozen pads with Natural Creation’s Postpartum Wellness Tea.

Step One:

Boil one liter of water. Remove from heat.

Step Two:

Add tea bag to boiled water. Place lid on pot and steep for 2 hours.

Step Three:

Over the sink, pour infused water onto a thin maxi pad until the pad has fully absorbed the water before water starts dripping.. Repeat with other pads until water is used up or you have the desired number of pads (remaining water can be added to hip baths).


Step Four:

Re-wrap pads in their original packaging, place them in a ziplock bag and in the freezer.

Step Five:

Place frozen pad on top of whatever heavy flow pad you are using for your lochia and this will also absorb the liquid as it melts to your body heat.

After baby is here, you may not have the extra time to prepare pads, so plan ahead. Making Postpartum Pads is a great early labour project. Have the instructions available so your support team can make them for you if you run out of time or if you need more.

Postpartum Wellness Tea Pads are a must have for any new mom, and all Natural Creation doulas make these pads for their clients!  If you are an expectant mom, or a doula wanting to provide your clients with this amazing healing relief, purchase a pack of 4 Postpartum Wellness Bath Teas to make the pads and healing infused water for baths!

    You don’t freeze them folded. Freeze them flat and then put them in a ziplock bag!!!’n

    I wanted to send you the bit of note to flianly give thanks yet again over the nice pointers you’ve documented in this article. It was so extremely open-handed with you to provide extensively just what a number of people might have distributed as an electronic book to generate some profit on their own, even more so seeing that you could have tried it in the event you decided. Those tricks as well acted as the great way to be aware that someone else have similar passion just as my own to find out way more concerning this condition. I know there are a lot more pleasurable occasions up front for folks who read your website.

    "Everyone needs an Emily at their birth. In the beginning I really had no idea what a difference having a doula was going to make! REALLY! In the first few month we created a birth plan all together, where Emily had us inquire as to what we wanted. This helped in itself making sure our values and idea were going to be met, and we were both heard. This already helped Kevin and I come together in creating what we wanted. Nearing the Birth I wasn't sure what symptoms were what, and what all the different sensations in my body were. I called Emily A LOT! Emily was always very calm and patient with my ups and downs. She even took me for a walk up the side of a small mountain, which I didn't even think I could do. The first night I was in labour, Emily sat with me all night, not only did I feel more comfortable with what was happening, my mom and Kevin both were able and took relief that I was being taken care of properly. Even though I had a midwife, Emily could be there for me as often as I needed. My birth was long and there were times I wanted to give up on my birth dreams. Emily was not just a cheerleader, but an intuitive support, always seeming to know what to say or do to help Kevin and I. In the end we got exactly what we asked for, which was a healthy baby born at home in a pool with both Kevin and I in the pool together. Kevin was overwhelmed with tears of joy, and he still drops a tear when he remembers what a difference Emily made for us. I'm sure we would have ended up in the hospital on painkillers ~ I never took prenatal, I never went to any classes, I didn't even do yoga. I sort of read books, but I much prefer to ask a real person questions. After my daughter came out we were at the midwife office for a check up, a pregnant woman came in and began to ask me what books I could recommend. I replied " All you need is a Doula!"
