{Fresh} Bath: Baby Herbal Bath Sessions

Long before they were popular, I fell in love with these sessions. There is something so earthy, so blissful, about a newborn silently floating in the water so content and alert. I always enjoy when my birth clients have home or birth center births and want to incorporate newborn herbal baths into their postpartum experience. Those photos are often my favorite and, in fact, one graces the front page of my website!

Herbal baths aren’t just a lovely bonding experience for Moms (or Dads!) and their newborns. They are also healing to both Mom and Baby and enjoying the benefits¬† of an herbal bath shouldn’t be reserved for the first few hours after birth or for those who have home births or birth center births.

Benefits for baby include:

  • calming
  • bonding
  • mimics aspects of being in the womb
  • anti-fungal
  • antiseptic
  • helps cradle cap
  • helps diaper rash
  • nourishes newborn skin
  • helps speed cord stump healing

Herbal Baby Bath sessions aren’t limited to birth and newborns! But there are added benefits for newly post-partum Moms:

  • soothing
  • relaxing
  • reduces swelling
  • helps prevent infection
  • helps speed perineum recovery
  • helps speed reproductive organ recovery
  • helps speed suture (cesarean or perineum) and tear recovery

One of my earlier baby herbal bath sessions wasn’t at a birth at all! It was back in my Newborn Photography days, a special request from a lovely client who really recognized the beauty in that moment. It planted the seed for these new sessions! Capturing this special moment shouldn’t be reserved only for those who are able to make it happen immediately following birth! Babies enjoy being held in the healing waters safely in a parent’s arms for weeks to come!

This session is ideal for any baby newborn through just prior to sitting (with some wiggle room depending on temperament of the baby).

  • organic healing toxin-free herbs supplied by me
