There are a few things that she can do. First, she can use Dermoplast spray to bring some relief to the area. The OB told me I could use this. I also did a sitz bath a few times a day. The midwives told me to use an herbal bath, and so I'd take a bath every day. These are the herbs that I used: New Momma Tush Soothing Bath. Two of the key herbs to use in the bath are comfrey and calendula, but I can't remember the others. Also make sure that she's using her peri-bottle. I also had to sit on a rubber inflatable ring for a while. Assure her that she will get better, but it's going to take some time, and she has every right to stay in bed for as long as she needs to.
