I am 1 week postpartum in Northern Germany (2nd VBAC of 4025g Freya! :-) and the worst of it is a *terrible* case of hemorrhoids. I am literally on my knees (on a pillow on the floor) because sitting is so uncomfortable. In the U.S. I would use generous amounts of witch hazel, but it looks like that is not available here. What can I use in its place?
