Perineal Massage Oil (50ml) 

Why it's loved

I'm a big believer in the body's ability to birth babies.

As a doula, I've attended births of 10 pounders that leave no trace. I've also seen mums of 7 pounders experience a 2nd degree tear.

There's no doubt there are many factors around birth that influence how your vagina and peri fares.Yet as a doula, I do see the value in perineal massage.

It's often thought of as just a stretching exercise, but it provides much more than that.

It can help women learn how to yield to sensations of stretch, pressure and discomfort.

It's an opportunity to experience releasing and relaxing around these sensations.

Plus I've noticed perineal massage helps build birthing confidence. And you can't have enough of that, surely?

What is it?

Peri Prep is a gentle and nourishing blend of pure, natural (and nut-free) plant oils.

It helps to condition the skin and support elasticity in preparation for birth.

It's designed for use with perineal massage from 34 weeks of pregnancy.

As this blend has been specially formulated for the delicate area of the perineum/vaginal opening, it's contains no essential oils. 

Step by step instructions included.

50ml bottle with pump lid. 

Shelf life: 6-9 months

It's been shown that prenatal perineal massage reduces the likelihood of perineal trauma (mainly episiotomies) and the reporting of ongoing perineal pain, and is generally well accepted by women.

A recent review concluded "antenatal perineal massage is associated with a lower risk of severe perineal trauma and postpartum complications."

Women had significantly lower incidence of episiotomies and perineal tears. There was also better wound healing and less perineal pain in the antenatal perineal massage group. It also reduced the second stage of labour, with significant improvement in Apgar scores at 1 and 5 min.

What does the research show?

Perineal massage undertaken from 34/35 weeks of pregnancy, "reduces the incidence of perineal trauma requiring suturing (mainly episiotomies) and women are less likely to report perineal pain at three months postpartum."

Yes, please.
