There's No Place Like Home Birth: Our Home Birth Story Part 4: Natural Postpartum Kit
What's In My Natural Postpartum Kit
Reusable Postpartum Pads
As many of my friends know I LOVE getting my items from Dalecia over at Love,d and as part of my postpartum kit, these are a must! MashaAllah always great quality and design, alhamdulilah Im never disappointed in Dalecia's products. Soooo I also use Love,d cloth menstural pads and I'm really glad I have been using reusable pads. My favorite method is hand washing them with a washboard because it really keeps them clean. The same detergent I will use on cloth diapers I will be using on the cloth pads inshaAllah
The All In Two Postpartum Pad is made with waterproof PUL fabric and an all natural hemp/organic cotton fleece, this two part system of a shell and snap-in 12x12in liner. To provide the protection and reassurance us moms need after having a baby when blood flow is much heavier than your menstruation flow. The pad shell has elastic gussests, helps in protecting against leaks and also creates a nice little pouch in which a ziplock full of crushed ice may sit within the liner for healing. Mothers have a choice between cloth liners or disposables to use within the shell!! MashaAllah thats pretty cool right!!
Tea For Wellness
This tea is for calming, it has chamomile leaves and all organic content. It has calendula flowers, red clover flowers, lavender flowers, catnip, spearmint, skullcap, thyme, oatsraw, lemon peel and a pinch of stevia. It is called fairytale tea, from Mountain Rose Herbs, and I am praying the calming feature will lighten any after birth pains.
Using my favorite for relaxation and calming, I will use Doterra's Lavender Essential Oil and Frankincense. Put it in a little bottle with water and spray for refreshing lift. Mix with a coconut oil or almond oil and get massaged with it.You can also use it in a diffuser during labor too

Along with these I will be inshaAllah resting, drinking plenty of water and taking it easy. Alhamdulilah with help from children and my husband, I won't have to worry about cooking and cleaning inshaAllah. I will try and add updates to my postpartum kit if anything changes inshaAllah
