There’s only a few things more surreal than complaining about swollen, leaky boobs and being told to put cold cabbage leaves on them. Like, we haven’t come up with anything better than getting biblical with salad greens?

It’s not surprising that there’s a TON of herbal remedies to start, stop, soothe, heal, strengthen, and tone various parts and functions of your body after childbirth. I mean, how long have people been giving birth, right? The library is huge. And it’s full of things I never even considered before, because when would someone learn about, say, galactogogues… except after they’ve joined this apparently super secret club of herbal experts?

It’s like a nursing welcoming party: here, we know you’re jacked up right now, here’s a ton of stuff you’ve never heard of before, good luck!
