My midwife told me to put lavander oil in the bath which was v soothing.

Do you mean arnica for the bruising?

Arnica tablets I think are better.
You cant put the cream on broken skin, so no good if you have stitches!

Chilled Witchhazel liquid (boots own brand) poured on your pad is really really soothing. Keep in fridge

Arnica is homeopathic and compatible with b'fing yes.

I was told to have luke warm baths with salt in as it's a natural healer, afaird i was a bit hmm wont that sting.

Which i have to say it did the frist time although im not sure if that was because of the salt or not, but after that i found salt baths were very soothing.

I swore by arnica tablets - took them before birth to help with pain, and after birth as well. felt wonderful (if a little saggy)
