    I also took and herbal bath about 1 hour after look up postpartum herbal baths it was wonderful helped me heal quickly

    I used goldenseal on the umbilical cord stump and it feel off in like 5 days it works great.

  • Nope. I didn't use anything. I healed from my tears/stitches in a week, stopped bleeding within that week, his stump fell off within a week and I did nothing to it either.
