We’ve worked with many mid-wife groups as well as OB/GYN’s on top of the great number of Chinese Medical practitioners specializing in Obstetrics & Gynecology and wanted to share with all the top 5 ways they have told us that they are using Yin-care®’s Herbal Wash and Yin-care®’as Supreme Oral Care with their new Mama’s and babes.
Birthing can leave quite the trauma on the vaginal tissue post-birth and the searing pain of a tear, irritation of a hemorrhoid or simply the sensitive hot tissues can be quite inflamed. Urinating can hurt the new Mom and the tenderness of the entire area can be witnessed by a slight waddle when she is up and moving around.
While the Mayo Clinic’s recommendations in dealing with vaginal soreness postpartum mostly revolve around sitting on something comfortable, taking a sitz bath in warm water and applying an ice pack with the most robust recommendation of placing a chilled pad soaked in witch hazel, we have something a BAZILLION times better that will not only speed the healing of the tissue, but will also feel so darn good to the Mama.
The beauty of the 10% dilution
First of all – there is no need to apply anything more than a 10% dilution of Yin-care® postpartum. Preserving lactobacilli is crucial in re-establishing a health microbiome for Mama. At 10% dilution lactobacilli has been shown to proliferate while still killing off unhealthy bacteria and yeast that can lead to other damp or damp-heat conditions.
Creating a large batch of 10% dilution
Prior to birth, have the new Mom create a giant batch of 10% dilution of Yin-care®’s Herbal Wash to have on hand. If she takes the 3.4oz bottle and pours it into a carafe and then adds 4 cups of water and keeps that in the refrigerator, she can use that as a base for a number of things.
For the Mama – 1-3
1 – Soak about 10-12 thick postpartum menstrual pads in this dilution and pop in the freezer. These can be pulled out and placed on the underwear of Mama as needed.
2 – Make sure she has the accordion applicator or a peri-bottle to fill with the Yin-care® dilution. This can be sprayed as soon as the first time Mama goes to the bathroom. It is wonderful for both cleaning and soothing the area.
3 – A compress of a cotton pad soaked in the dilution can be applied to any hemorrhoid that has occurred. The compress can be left on for anywhere from 15-60 minutes 2-3 times a day.
For the Baby 4-5
4 – Baby’s bottom can get irritated too and this can also be a damp or damp-heat condition. Mom can take her favorite diaper cream and mix in some Yin-care®’s Herbal wash creating a 10% dilution within the cream. So 10% approximately of Yin-care®’s Herbal Wash and 90% of the cream. This too, can be made ahead of time. What a great baby gift from their good friend that takes the time to mix this for Mama!
5 – On occasion baby can develop thrush in the mouth. Yin-care®’s Supreme Oral Care (not presently available) can be a fabulous way to attend to that in a very non-invasive manner. Simply have Mama drizzle/rub Yin-care®’s Supreme Oral care over the nipple and around the entire areola region so that it gets into baby’s mouth. You can also use a small syringe that is used often for gripe water and squirt a very small amount around in baby’s mouth. This can be applied on the breast at all breast feedings. If you choose to use the syringe – use only 2 times a day and watch for improvement.
