3. What exactly does Easiotomy Cream do?
Easiotomy Cream is a 100% natural, safe and effective cream made from selected herbs, minerals and vitamins specifically for the perineal area before and after childbirth. Easiotomy Cream can be massaged onto the perineal area, before birth and during the last few weeks of pregnancy helping to tone and prepare this area for the stretching it will experience during childbirth.
4. What does Easiotomy Cream contain?
Easiotomy Cream is a 100% herbal formula which contains the following carefully selected herbs in therapeutic dosage:
- Vitamin E oil is widely used as a natural skin tonic. Many people use Vitamin E products topically to ensure optimal skin health.
- Gotu Kola (Centella asiatica) is used topically for the health of the skin and connective tissue. This herb also contains Asiaticosides - which support the synthesis of lipids and proteins necessary for healthy skin. (Shukla A, Rasik AM, Jain GK, et al. "In vitro and in vivo wound healing activity of asiaticoside isolated from Centella asiatica". J Ethnopharmacol. 1999;65:1-11).
- Comfrey essential oil soothes the skin and surrounding tissue. This ingredient soothes and supports tissues and maintains healthy cell growth. It has also been studied for its ability to support healthy skin flora. (Karavaev, V. A., Solntsev, M. K., Iurina, T. P., Iurina, E. V., Poliakova, I. B., and Kuznetsov, A. M. "Antifungal activity of aqueous extracts from the leaf of cowparsnip and comfrey". Izv.Akad.Nauk Ser.Biol 2001;(4):435-441.)
- St. John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum) and is commonly used as an internal remedy for supporting emotional wellbeing. Applied topically, as it has been in Western herbalism and European folk tradition, Hypericum perforatum is an excellent skin tonic. In recent times, this herb has also been shown to help support skin health. (Schempp CM, Winghofer B, Ludtke R, Simon-Haarhaus B, Shopp E, Simon JC. "Topical application of St John's wort (Hypericum perforatum L) and of its metabolite hyperforin inhibits the allostimulatory capacity of epidermal cells". Br J Derm. 2000;142:979-984).
- Lavender essential oil is valued for its soothing and health-promoting properties for the skin. It has also been researched for its soothing properties on the perineum after childbirth. (Dale A, Cornwell S. "The role of lavender oil in relieving perineal discomfort following childbirth: a blind randomized clinical trial." J Adv Nurs 1994;19(1):89-96.) It has also been studied for its ability to act as a natural soother (Ghelardini C, Galeotti N, Salvatore G, et al. "Local anaesthetic activity of the essential oil of Lavandula angustifolia." Planta Med 1999;65(8):700-703.)
- Pilewort (Ranunculus ficaria) is another soothing herb which has been used for centuries to maintain tissue health, especially in the perineal area. This herb is one of the earliest of spring flowers whose tubers give the plant its Latin name ficaria - from the Latin for a fig, ficus. Historically, the tubers were likened to nodules - hence the common name "Pilewort". Constituents include anemonin, protoanemonin and tannin.
- Silica (3x) is essential in the maintenance of healthy and strong skin and is the main component in all connective body tissues. Silica also stimulates cell metabolism and cell formation, improving elasticity.
- Witch hazel (Hamamelis) has long been used by Native Americans for topical skin health. Studies have also shown Witch hazel to be especially soothing on the skin. ( "Drug therapy of hemorrhoids. Proven results of therapy with a hamamelis containing hemorrhoid ointment." Results of a meeting of experts. Dresden, 30 August 1991]. Fortschr.Med.Suppl 1991;116:1-11)( Korting, H. C., Schafer-Korting, M., Hart, H., Laux, P., and Schmid, M. "Anti-inflammatory activity of hamamelis distillate applied topically to the skin. Influence of vehicle and dose." Eur.J.Clin.Pharmacol. 1993;44(4):315-318.)

12. How long does a bottle last?
Each 20g tube of Easiotomy Cream is to be used during the weeks prior to and after birth. One tube should last on average between 3-4 weeks as a little goes a long way.
13. I have heard that my first bowel movement after birth will be difficult. Is this true?
Many women are worried about this when the time comes. The best advice is to try not to worry and to allow nature to take its course. One often does not have a bowel movement for a day or two after giving birth and this usually gives you a chance to recover. Make sure that you eat lots of fresh fruit and vegetables and especially that you drink plenty of water to prevent constipation and encourage a soft stool. Once you have your first bowel movement, you will probably realize that your anxiety was greater than the actual discomfort experienced!
14. What else can I do?
Cold packs or compresses placed on the perineum can help to relieve the worst of the discomfort during the first few days after delivery. Special compresses for the perineum may be provided by your hospital or birthing center or may be bought from medical supply stores. However, even a clean cloth soaked in a little lavender or rose water and applied to the perineal area for a few minutes will provide welcome relief.
'Sitz baths' or sitting in a clean tub filled with cold or warm water will provide relief from pain and reduce swelling. Adding salt to the water will also help to prevent infection. Use a squirt bottle to decrease burning pain when urinating. Squirt your perineal area with water while urinating as well as afterwards for a gentler option than wiping.
15. When should I call my health care provider?
Complications of episiotomies do occur so call your doctor or health care provider if:
- Pain does not decrease within about 2 weeks
- Pain or swelling worsens
- Sudden bleeding occurs
- You develop a fever
