At a glance: 

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 to everything else on the market. 

What they said:

“Spritz for Bits helps to provide instant relief for post-delivery discomfort and pain caused by tearing, bruising, swelling and stretching during childbirth. Antibacterial, anti-fungal and pain relieving, Spritz for Bits can also be used directly onto surgical wounds, such as caesarean sections and episiotomies to keep the wound clean and soothe pain, irritation and bruising. Its unique formula complete with multi-directional spray allows easy, no fuss, application to the perineum/anal area, immediately after birth, or to surgical wounds after the dressing has been removed. Made with soothing lavender oil to ease soreness, antibacterial tea tree to prevent infection and witch hazel to promote healing, Spritz for Bits is a hospital bag essential. Even our preservative is a natural, vegetable based product, known for its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, and can be found under 'parfum' (not to be confused with synthetic fragrance, 'perfume') in the ingredients list. We used this because it is known to be one of the most natural and non-irritant preservatives, making sure that our spritz is only soothing.”

Why do you think this product is so different to anything else on the market?

I think that this product is different to anything else on the market as it super convenient and easy to use. It can be applied directly to surgical wounds unlike lots of products from a similar category and provides an instant relief. This product is small enough to fit inside your handbag or baby changing bag without taking up too much room or being too heavy.

Why does it change your life with your baby?

I believe that this product can be life changing with you new baby, as it can completely change the way you feel. With my first born I didn’t have this product, I was in agony even when just sitting and cuddling my baby due to the trauma of child birth. I wish I’d Spritz for Bits had been around then as it does exactly what it says on the tin. I can sit comfortably when tending to my newborn without squirming in pain!

What excites you about this product?

This product excites me because I feel as though it does exactly what it says on the bottle. Although it is hard to believe that such a small, simple product can make such a difference to your after-care it really does. I cannot recommend it enough. I was much more relaxed when going about my day and when using the toilet as I knew I would have the spritz for bits spray handy to use whenever needed.

What one thing would you change about this product?

If I were to change one thing about this product it would be the spray nozzle. I’m not sure if it was just a problem on the bottle I was sent, but I found when applying to the affected area it could be difficult. Unless the bottle was held up right, which is difficult to do when crouching over the toilet, it wouldn’t come out as well or as evenly. Otherwise excellent product that I couldn’t fault.

Tested by mum Victoria Hill for the Mother & Baby awards 2018:

Why do you think this product is so different to anything else on the market?

I had never heard of a product like this before! It is so different to anything else I have seen on the market and is so innovative. It caters to a real demand and a problem that a lot of women experience.

Why does it change your life with your baby?

It changes life with baby because it helps you feel comfortable and promotes healing of painful areas, allowing you to continue to look after your newborn.

What excites you about this product?

It is exactly what I needed after giving birth. It really did ease all discomfort and gave me a wonderful fresh feeling, whilst also helping with healing.

What one thing would you change about this product?

I wouldn’t change anything about this product – I love it!
