Your doctor will probably give you some pain medications like Ibuprofen. I popped a few tablets for the first two days. After which, when the pain was bearable, I opted for natural pain-relief methods like taking a Sitz Bath.
If you had Episiotomy, you would have some stitches as well. And, there will be blood (lots of them). Sitz baths help keep your perineal area clean which is the key to prevent infection.
