We don't talk about these post-delivery problems enough, so we love that My Expert Midwife has developed a product to help soothe these uncomfortable issues. Our mums loved this product and thought it was completely different from everything else on the market.
How did this product make your life easier?
Sammy: This product definitely helped ease the pain after labour and having a little tear and bruising. The spray helped soothe the area and meant I felt a lot more comfortable while getting on with day to day activities and this also helped the area heal a lot quicker. This meant I was back to normal sooner than if I hadn’t used this product. This meant life was a lot easier and more comfortable looking after a newborn and a toddler.
Stephanie: Spritz for Bitz is great for mums who have delivered vaginally and especially those who have had stitches put in. This product is so easy to use, just a few sprays on a maternity pad or toilet tissue for instant relief. The product has helped with swelling, cooling and soothing the affected area which makes for a more comfortable few days after birth!
Claire: This product was absolutely fantastic as I was so sore from giving birth and the spritz was soothing, smelt nice and I knew it would not harm me as there are no harsh chemicals. It is recommended by midwives so I would definitely recommend the product and purchase it myself. It has a lovely smell and it is very soothing.
Would you recommend this to other mums?
Aneeka: Yes I would! You can carry it around (not that you'll be out much) but for appointments etc. It is handy to have with you if you need a quick fix and are unbearably uncomfortable.
Helen: It is vegan and cruelty-free. It is multifunctional which I think is really important when you're a mum and are spending money on products, particularly when on maternity leave when money may be tighter. It is an easy-to-use product and the multi-directional spray makes it easy to use in whatever area you need to. It sprays efficiently at all angles.
Victoria: There is nothing else quite like this on the market, I would recommend it! I do, however, feel that it is a little over priced at almost £20. It is a good size bottle that is easy to slip into your hospital bag. It makes you feel nice, fresh and comfortable, and it is easy to apply from a hospital bed so you don’t need to put the baby down.
Would you choose this product to win?
Leah: I don’t think there is another on the market and I am not aware of any others. I would use it for the reasons stated above. Its ease of use, good smell, and you can apply directly to the area of pain and discomfort. Ultimately, it did provide comfort which was exactly the purpose of the spray. I would recommend this to my friends.
Sarah: This is my first baby and I haven’t tried any other products on the market. I haven’t heard of any others but I got recommended this product by others and unfortunately, it didn’t work for me. I would say it’s a good product and have heard good things about it and how it helps but it’s just not for me.
Claire: I think this product is nicely packaged it is small enough to fit in the hospital bag. It is discreet with the packaging so I was happy to have it in my handbag for those days following birth. The product smells nice, unlike other products I had tried following a previous birth. The product really stands out to me as midwives recommend it.
What changes would you make to this product?
Sammy: If I could change one thing it would be the design. I think this product needs marketing so mums would know about it and why it is beneficial to new mums. Calling the product spritz for bits doesn’t fully explain what this product does and how good it is. The design could be more appealing to make potential customers look at it and want to read about it and find out what it is.
Stephanie: I think if people could buy it in stores this would help mum's trust the product more, as sometimes people are cautious to buy online especially as it's not a particularly cheap product. I think the size and quality of the product is great value for money, but seeing it online without knowing people who have used the product, I think some mums may be put off.
Victoria: I would change the price of the product to around the £10 mark rather than £20. I do feel it is very pricey for what it is and does. You also don’t get very much of the product for your money. I would expect the bottle to be slightly larger for the hefty price tag. However, can you really put a price on past healing and comfort after birth? Probably not!
