So you are having a baby, or you just had a baby and your girl parts are feeling rough. Trust me when I say, grab a bottle of homemade perineum spray (or store-bought) and use it.

This article is very short. I am linking to a couple of postpartum topics and also an article on preventing vaginal tearing. There is no point in repeating it all here. But I wanted an easy-to-read short recipe for you guys.

Here's a quick Instagram reel on prepping for your postpartum journey!

This group, board, and guidance have been absolutely invaluable.

I was extremely comfortable asking questions, making decisions and even though nothing went according to my "plan", I couldn't be any happier with the way everything went!!!
