Yes, it is exactly what it sounds like.
Vaginal steam baths are basically a detoxing facial for your lady parts. They cleanse, tone, and nourish your cervix, uterus, and vaginal tissues. Women have been doing them for centuries and they are just starting to come back in fashion as women are starting to lift the veil and search out ancient traditional healing methods that got lost in the shuffle of the last several generations.
This sounds like exactly what you need after delivery and the postpartum period. We like for the lochia to have stopped, or slowed to the yellowish-white stage before we do a vaginal steam bath. Specifically, steam baths are helpful for:
- bladder and yeast infections
- irregular and painful periods
- uterine fibroids
- perineal tears
- scarring from C-sections
- hysterectomies and laparoscopies
- it also boosts circulation to the pelvis — which means increased oxygenation, dilation of blood vessels, and a relaxing of the pelvic floor muscles that tend to cramp or spasm before or during menstruation
