What is a Sitz Bath?

A sitz bath is a warm shallow bath where you sit up to your hips. It takes its name from the German sitzbad meaning seat bath. This technique offers a targeted therapy for your perineum as that is the part that is being bathed. Soaking in mild warm water boosts blood flow to the area which can help the healing process and soothe the area.

Why Use a Sitz Bath?

During child birth sometimes the perineum can tear, or the doctor may need to perform an episiotomy to ensure a safe delivery. Afterwards your perineum can be sore and swollen for several weeks. Soaking in a sitz bath can help speed healing and soothe irritation.

Sitz baths are also commonly used for the treatment of haemorrhoids, anal fissues, constipation, diarrhea and prostatitis to offer relief from soreness, itching, burning and inflammation.

How to Take a Sitz Bath?

  • add about 5-10cm of mild warm water (some may prefer cool water to reduce swelling)
  • optional - add postpartum sitz salts  for extra soothing
  • soak up to three times a day for 10-15 min as advised by your healthcare professional
  • gently pat your perineum dry (avoid wiping as this can be abrasive)

Note:
- do not use hot or boiling water
- always test the temperature of the water before use
- do not use bubble bath, shower gels or soap as these can cause dryness and irritation
- do not place in the dishwasher
