The Herbal Bath is something I’ve had my eye on for a few years. I wanted to do one myself with my last baby, but she arrived early before I had gotten around to buying any herbs. The herbal bath is formulated to be healing for mom’s perineum and for baby’s cord stump, while also being calming and soothing. It should be a relaxing enjoyable time for mom & baby, and as you can see in the photos, Baby generally falls asleep.

In my Herbal Bath sessions, I provide the herbs and prepare the bath. I photograph for about a half an hour and then you are free to spend the rest of the time soaking and enjoying the bath. The herbal bath session should take place in the first week of life. The following photos are of a seven-day-old baby. Herbal Bath sessions are $250. Enjoy!
