How to heal slightly opened episiotomy wound
Just looking for advice or to see if anyone else has experienced the same as me.
i gave birth to my beautiful boy 9 days ago and had to have an episiotomy due to him being stressed.
I had midwife look at stitches as I still feel abit sore. She said the skin layer has opened slightly but no sign of infection. I also have 1 pile too. All she said was it will take a little longer to heal.
Does anyone know how long this will take to heal now or how I can speed this process up. I'm having lavender baths as recommended and changing pad regularly to prevent infection. Just want to be able to go out and do normal stuff (walking)
