MassagePreparing the perineum with massage may help it to stretch more easily during childbirth, reducing 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.

Begin from week 34

You can do the massage yourself or ask your partner to help.

You may find it easiest to perform the massage after a bath or shower when your skin is warm and soft.

Find a comfortable position on a bed or sofa with pillows behind you for support, place your feet together and drop your legs out to the sides. Alternatively you could stand with one leg up on a step or stool, changing legs halfway through.

On clean hands warm Perineum Balm between your thumb and forefinger. 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.

Massage can be included daily for around five minutes.
