Why you need a peri bottle after birth

Mums have dubbed the little bottle a 'lifesaver' after giving birth


It might be small and unglamorous but this little bottle has been praised as a “lifesaver” after giving birth.


The peri bottle is used for rinsing your perineum with warm water after you give birth. The small holes in the spout give you a gentle spray of water – offering relief from that awful sting if you’re recovering from a tear. (We warned you it was unglam.)
