Has anyone done, or thought about doing a healing ritual? Did it help? I read in my LLL book that taking a bath by candlelight with your baby can help with cesarean grief and closure. That resonates with me since we were planning an unmedicated waterbirth, so it's kind of like re-creating the birth the way it "should have" been. I could hold Jayden and nurse him in the warm water as long as we like and cry if I need to. :)

I saw some beautiful photos of a woman who'd had twins earlier than expected.  She had a "healing bath" with them.  It looked like a wonderful idea.

That is so beautiful. I never thought to put herbs in the bath; great idea!
