Prepare Your Body for Childbirth with Perineum Massage
Childbirth is a daunting prospect, especially for those expecting their first child. The fear of the unknown is very common and there always seems to be someone just desperate to tell you their very own horror story about their birthing experience! The feeling of having such little control can be frightening. Whilst the scariest aspects of childbirth are out of your hands (and in the hands of highly skilled doctors and nurses, so try not to panic!) there are certain things you can do to prevent tearing the perineum; this is one of the things women fear the most about childbirth.
What and Where is the Perineum?
The perineum is the small area of firm skin and muscular tissue between the vagina and the anus. The perineum plays a significant role in women’s health. This muscular tissue connects with pelvic floor muscles, offering support to the pelvic organs. It works extra hard in pregnancy due to the extra weight it bears.
Why Should You Massage the Perineum?
Perineal massage encourages blood flow to the area and increases the elasticity of the perineum for birth. Massage helps to increase the perineum’s capacity to stretch which is a massive help in birth. This ability to stretch further can make giving birth much less painful and greatly reduce your chances of tearing or cutting. Using Gynofit Perineal Massage Oil for Birth infuses the skin with oils that can further increase its elasticity. Tearing of the perineum during childbirth can weaken the pelvic floor, which in turn makes later pelvic floor problems or prolapse of the uterus more likely. Prevention is always better than cure, so it really is worth your while taking even seemingly small steps to protect your pelvic floor for the future.
A Proven Technique to Avoid Tearing During Pregnancy
Up to 85% of women suffer some degree of perineal trauma during childbirth. Whilst this figure is high, you can certainly take steps to prevent such trauma for a more comfortable birthing experience and a much faster recovery. Studies confirm that timely and regular perineal massages reduce the likelihood of perineal tearing or cutting during childbirth.
How to Massage the Perineum
There is no hard and fast rule, you simply work the oil in to your perineum as you find comfortable. As you feel around the area, you will notice some areas are more tense or firm than others – you can apply a little more pressure to these areas, just as a masseur would to relieve your back of knots. Remember to breath deeply and engage the pelvic floor as you massage. Try to totally relax during perineal massage; if you feel comfortable you can engage your partner, so they feel a part of your birthing experience.
