Peri Prep Your Bits from My Expert Midwife is a softening and moisturising oil for perineal massage. Ideal from 34 weeks pregnant, Peri Prep Your Bits is a perineal massage oil developed by midwives to help you prepare for your baby’s birth. The gentle formula is ideal for encouraging the skin around your perineum to stretch more easily during childbirth. This mum-approved massage oil contains a unique blend of natural essential oils to help nourish, protect, and promote skin elasticity.
During childbirth a tear to the perineum is common, and in some births women may be offered an episiotomy (a cut to the perineum). Perineal massage from 34 weeks has been clinically proven to help stretch the perineum and make it more elastic, therefore reducing the risk of tearing or the need for an episiotomy, which helps promote recovery. Our award-winning perineal massage oil is safe to use in pregnancy, containing a unique blend of all natural ingredients including avocado, lavender, grapeseed, eucalyptus and sweet almond oils. It can also be used as a general massage oil during and after labour.
You would normally start perineal massage between at around weeks 34 of pregnancy. You need to do it at least three times per week and for around three to five minutes at a time. For detailed guidance on how to do perineal massage visit the My Expert Midwife blog.
