Why it's loved

After you've birthed your baby - and then your placenta - your uterus needs to adjust.

It begins the slow and steady work of contracting back down to pre-pregnancy size. This is called involution.

This process also helps curb postnatal blood loss from where the placenta was. 

For mums, this process is felt as 'afterpains' or involution pains.

Similar to menstrual cramps they can vary in intensity, from mild to very strong.

They're typically worse during breastfeeding, due to the release of the hormone oxytocin. This hormone has a direct effect on the uterus, making it contract.

Unfortunately, afterpains tend to get progressively worse after each baby!

They begin around 12 hours after birth and are usually the strongest within the first 24-36 hours.

They typically continue for the first 72 hours, but some mums feel them lingering for 5-7 days after birth.  

After Pains Relief is a liquid herbal extract that provides just that - relief from the cramping.

It's breastfeeding safe and suitable for mamas after vaginal or caesarean births.

What is it?

After Pains Relief is a herbal extract blend formulated by a Naturopath and Doula.

It contains a blend of carefully selected antispasmodic and muscle relaxant herbs.

These herbs have properties that are aimed at the smooth muscles of the uterus for involution (after) pains.

It's designed to be taken from the day of the birth and throughout the first week.

After Pains Relief contains alcohol based extractions of the herbs. This creates a high potency preparation with high absorbency and fast-acting medicinal properties.

Given that only a very small/negligible amount of alcohol is consumed, it remains a very safe and effective way of using herbs.

Breastfeeding safe formula.

How do these herbs help with after pains contractions?

Cramp Bark and Black Haw are two herbs with an affinity for the smooth muscle of the uterus. They both help ease tension and cramping within the uterine muscle, without interfering with the natural process of involution.

"This product was an absolute essential, I started using it right after delivery and instantly could tell the difference in pain level when taking it. It has a pleasant taste, and it worked better than taking Panadol and Nurofen. I couldn’t live without it in the first week. Definitely recommend."
