Re: what is the sitz bath?

A "sitz bath" is traditionally used by postpartum women as soothing relief for vaginal bruises and tears.

You don't NEED a bathtub, in fact, a shallow basin works best. Just fill it part way with water (comfortably hot for you) and add Epsom Salt ... 1/4 -1/2 cup is what I always used.

Lower your buttocks down in it, and soak.

Sorry for a very generalized explanation ... but, anyway, this procedure has been a BLESSING for many of us mothers out there. ;)

Edited to add: I re-read your message ... and am trying to figger out the CONTEXT of your question ... let me do some browsing to see if I can find the origin of your curiosity.
