    Arnica for after, it's great!!! Check with your midwife. She might have some good ones..Shepards purse is another that's good too..

    get arnica 30c potency from your pharmacy (Boots do this) and start taking a few days before expected labour and then afterwards as well. It's meant to help with the healing after birth. xxx
