Postpartum Constipation - Home Remedies

Constipation after childbirth should be treated. If neglected, it can lead to added pain and discomfort. Although it will be hard to pass bowels for the first couple of days after childbirth, you must make an effort to go to the toilet. However, do not force yourself if you are finding it hard to pass your stools.
 I used to dread going to the toilet as the mere thought of having to bear the sharp stinging pain in my anus as well as my pelvic passage would deter me.

I have given below a few home remedies that are safe and will help ease your bowels. Stick to a regular routine of going to the toilet every morning if possible.  
  • Take a spoonful of ghee (clarified butter) in a glass of warm water just before going to bed.
  • Take a glass of warm water with 2 tsps of honey 3 times every day.
  •  Juice of half a lemon in a glass of hot water first thing in the morning is effective.
  •  A decoction of boiling a tbsp of roasted fennel seeds in 1 liter of water is very effective for constipation and stomach cramps due to gas.
  • Isabgol or psyllium husk is an excellent source of fiber. It is very effective to cure constipation and irregular bowel movements.

Psyllium husks are native plants of India and Pakistan
  •   Take 1 tbsp of isabgol/psyllium husk added to a glass of lukewarm water before bedtime every day. Isabgol is available in packets in a medical store.
  • Application of petroleum jelly/vaseline in and around your anus will soothe burning sensation as well as ease bowel movements.
  • Juice of aloe vera is also very effective for smooth bowels.
  • Green tea also helps ease your bowel movements.
  • Last but not the least, drink plenty of warm water.
