How to Do Perineal Massage: Best Oil & Step-By-Step Guide

What if I told you that you could reduce your risk of vaginal tearing during delivery in 5 minutes a day during the weeks leading up to birth?

 It sounds too good to be true, but research has shown that it is true, indeed!

The good news is that research proves that perineal massage reduces the risk of perineal trauma, as well as ongoing pain after delivery.

Wash your hands, or better yet, wash your hands AND wear gloves. You don’t want any bad bacteria anywhere near your vagina.

1. Clean hands or put on sanitary gloves

There are 3 positions most moms prefer for comfortably performing perineal massage by themselves. You can also ask your partner to perform the massage for you.

2. Find your preferred position

3. Lubricate your fingers with BabyIt Perineal Massage Gel 

Your goal is to make this firm tissue stretchier before childbirth.

4. Using lubricated fingers from both hands, place the forefinger or thumb where the muscles form a tight, U-shaped rim. 

Your goal is to stretch and widen the U-shaped rim at the back of your vaginal canal.

5. Slowly massage from the sides to the back of your vaginal canal, near your rectum, and then back to the sides.
