    I'm thinking about taking this after labour. ( if I haven't melted by then) it's supposed to help healing and swelling has any one used this is the past? Just curious about it! I'm willing to give anything a bash!

    I thought it was just for bruising? I got recommended to use it after my boob job but never needed it.

    I have 'mum & me' bath soak too though.. didnt know it had it in!

    That's likely to be water retention hun which will go down on its own once you have given birth, arnica is for foofy swelling xx

    Yeah it's supposed to help with swelling, healing of any cuts and bruises down there, minimise bleeding after and help your uterus go back. You get like little tablets I think that's what I've read any ways! X

    I've always used arnica for bruising, it can be used alongside painkillers etc so worth a try
