Episiotomy and Tear Care

For those that don't know, an Episiotomy is a surgical cut made at the opening of the vagina during childbirth, to aid a difficult delivery and prevent rupture of tissues. Not only did I get an Episiotomy but also tore (ruptured some tissues). This lead to me getting some pretty snazzy stitches all over the place and those of you who follow me on Insta will know how my down there bits are doing thanks to my Faj Updates. Episiotomies and Tears usually heal well and easily with stitches but due to the awkward location of my tear (scroll down for my brilliant diagram) I burst my stitches...twice, ended up with two infections and pretty much hated my life for a couple of weeks but this post is going to be a  guide on getting over a butchered faj and tips on not getting it infected because sharing is caring.

Latest In Beauty: A Beauty Box The Way A Beauty Box Should Be

I'm a sucker for a good Beauty Box but I often find that the novelty soon wears off after a couple of months and I'm left with a load of mini products I'm not interested in using. When Latest in Beauty offered to send me a box I was a little skeptical but was soon surprised to find a decent sized box packed to the brim with a range of amazing products, none of which I'll be casting aside.

Rediscovering Fragrances

During the first stages of my pregnancy I went off so many fragrances; the usual dessert scented candles that I'd love suddenly made me sick followed by fruit fragrances, bacon being cooked, the green Radox bubblebath, my favourite perfumes and my shampoo. This wasn't ideal during the festive season when you expect all the gift sets and I was worried that I would be permanently put off my favourite smells.

My Birth Story (It's not cute)

If you're squeamish and don't appreciate descriptions of open wounds, smelly pus, poo explosions and the worst pain imaginable then I suggest you go and read one of my beauty reviews because boy have I got a horror story to tell you. This is my birth story, the gruesome tale of how the most beautiful baby came into the world. I never had a birth plan which may come as a shock to those who know how organised I am and how much I enjoy planning; I don't know anyone who's birth plan has gone to plan and I didn't know what to expect so decided not to bother having any expectations at all, when Luke and I rocked up to the Delivery Unit at 3am on the 10th March 2018 the Midwife asked me what my birth plan was, I said "To do as I'm told and get this baby out as safely as possible" - I think it went to plan, all things considered.
