This Naturopath formulated perineal massage oil is a gentle and nourishing blend of pure natural (nut free) plant oils.
Designed for use with perineal massage from 34 weeks of pregnancy, these rich, organic oils help to condition the skin whilst encouraging and supporting elasticity of the tissues, in preparation for birth.
As this blend has been specially formulated for the delicate area of the perineum/vaginal opening, it is essential oil free.
Contains: Apricot Kernel Oil* (Prunus armeniaca), Wheatgerm Oil* (Triticum vulgare), Rosehip Seed Oil* (Rosa canina fruit oil), Evening Primrose Oil (Oenothera Biennis), Natural Vitamin E Oil (D-alpha-Tocopherol)
*100% Australian Certified Organic ingredient
Research has shown that perineal massage undertaken from 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."
Most women are keen to give birth without perineal tears, cuts and stitches, as these often cause pain and discomfort afterwards, and this can impact negatively on sexual functioning.
Full instructions for perineal massage are included.
You'll also receive some of my Childbirth Educator/Doula tips on how you can reduce your likelihood of vaginal/perineal damage at birth.
