I had a compound hand and labial tears, too. Yowza...I hope you're healing well. Another idea for iron is Complete Iron System by Rainbow Light. That's what my midwife gave me. Suck down that floradix!!!
I couldn't walk without using Dermoplast spray and putting Tucks Pads in my undies. Try it, it worked wonders for my tearing! Also Comfrey Root baths helped too. I'm sure you're already doing a lot better though. You're making me miss my birth SO BAD! Makes me want to have another one! Good luck and enjoy that little one!
Adina - congratulations on your new little one - she sure is sweet. The photo titled "long day" is so much like one I have of my dd about 8 hours after her birth - she's laying just like that with her little fist by her face.
Congratulations, Adina !!!!!!!!
Great birth story.
We don't "know" either, but I've followed your journey always wishing to read about this moment. Thanks for sharing.
And welcome to this world little Brigit.
