I took a similar product after the birth of my last two babies. The afterbirth pains were so wicked, and they get worse each time! They left me in tears. I didn’t want to still be in pain after the baby was OUT.
I have given birth seven times and the last few times the after pains of birth have been pretty painful.
The normal products such as Ibuprofen or Tylenol the doctor or midwife recommended were providing no relief.
A hot water bottle or heating pad provided temporary relief, but it was hard to dread breastfeeding my new baby when I knew the after pains would accompany our nursing sessions.
Finally in my last pregnancy I found Mother’s Choice Contract Ease.
Contract Ease is an all natural herbal supplement that includes these ingredients: Crampbark, Wild Yam, Black Haw, Scullcap, Valerian Root, Hops, Chamomile Flowers, Fennel and Catnip. It was so wonderful to find a product that worked without having to put harmful chemicals into my body.
Contract Ease comes in two sizes – 2 oz and 8 oz bottles. The 2 oz lasted me until my womb had retracted back to its normal size. I have kept my bottle on my shelf so I would remember the name in case I ever become pregnant again.
Contract Ease was formulated by Shonda Parker and produced by TriLight, Inc. It was a God send. My after pains truly disappeared and made my postpartum nursing experience so much more relaxed since I didn’t have to cringe every time Noah wanted to nurse. I would recommend this product for a shower gift prior to a new mama’s labor and delivery.
I also took liquid calcium and magnesium several times a day after my last baby was born. I would say it helped about 20%.
What did you do to help with wicked afterbirth pains?
