After DD1 I took Acetaminophen & Ibuprofin several times a day to deal with the pain from an episiotomy & a very bad tear. I also wouldn't take anything stronger (I read a scary story just after DD's birth about a women who took some kind of morphine-based meds after birth and wound up killing her new baby through breastfeeding - I've been terrified of the things ever since.) Worked like gangbusters. Here's hoping the same mix helps with afterpains!
