Prepare yourself for birth with this perineum massage balm which can reduce the likelihood of perineal trauma or episiotomy and postbirth perineal pain. It also prepares you for the sensation of stretching you will experience during the birth enabling you to feel more relaxed, which in turn can help you to deliver more comfortably.
Directions: Either yourself or with your partner, using clean hands, gently warm the balm between thumb and forefinger. Get into a comfortable position, either lying down with legs to the sides, or standing with one leg on a step or chair.
Place one thumb just inside the back wall of the vagina with your forefinger on your perineum. Press down towards the rectum to stretch and then gently massage in a rhythmic U shaped motion maintaining the stretch as you do so. Breathe and concentrate on relaxing the perineum as you massage. Initially you may experience a tingling sensation but this should subside as you continue.
