Postpartum recovery is an important topic to me, especially after having three babies and my last as a home birth. I love Emily a natural and frugally green blogger over at Liverenewed and when she asked for posts during her postpartum recovery I happily wrote 8 Tips for a Healthy Postpartum Recovery.
Here are Three of the Eight Tips from the post:
Raw Honey is a must have on my postpartum care list. The raw honey has antimicrobial properties, and is perfect to put on your pads while you are still bleeding. I know it sounds sticky and gross, but the relief it provides feels amazing, especially after pushing out a baby.
Before the baby comes it is important to make meals that freeze easily. My husband and I cooked up a storm and filled our standup freezer to capacity. This will not only save you money from buying take out food from restaurants, but the meals will be healthier and mealtimes will be less stressful.
Olive Oil is great to use to massage your baby. The olive oil also works great to use on the baby’s bum, especially when the baby has those first sticky meconium poops.
