    Yes, arnica, helps reduce swelling down there. Its a miracle worker £4 out of boots/chemist, tiny little tablets that you swallow.

    Can you breastfeed while taking those?

    Midwife told me to eat plenty of iron rich food afterwards to help with blood loss and a friend of mine swears by taking cinnamon tea - just made by boiling the cinnamon sticks - also think you need vit D supplements if you are breastfeeding

    I swear by arnica too. In fact I've started taking it 1 a day before hand and will be taking it 4 times a day after baby especially if I have a csection.
