Has anyone else out there used an Epi-no to help prepare for birth? My question is, how far did you get before birth?
I'm 38 weeks and currently on just over 7cm. I've been doing it a couple of weeks and feel it's plateauing... also every day I still need to build up to 7cm, rather than getting there straight away.
Any Epi-no experience/stories welcome!
Yes, I used one. I managed to get to 7cm. Whilst it gave me some confidence going into labour, I ended up with an assisted delivery and an episiotomy. Everyone has a natural stretch limit I think - unless I had been epi-no-ing daily from the moment I conceived, I doubt I would have had a different outcome.
Hope you have more luck!
