What are the benefits of sitz baths?
Sitz baths often come in the form of a small plastic basin that sits atop the toilet and should be filled with warm water. The healing properties of Sitz baths are based on hydrotherapy, whereby the warmth of the water promotes circulation in the pelvic area. This speeds up the healing process. Sitz baths are recommended immediately following delivery to soothe perineal tears and soreness.
