Hello I'm 33 weeks and apparently I should be doing perinium massage? What is that??

You stick your thumb(s) inside the vagina and massage downwards in a U shape.

Use of an plain vegetable oil or lube is obviously recommended to keep things lubricated!

I couldn’t do it to myself as it hurt a bit at first so had to get DH to do it.

It made no difference to me at all, I still needed an episiotomy!

I did it both times and didn't tear so I would say donit, but I think that the tearing business might be down to luck. Worth a go though.

Very highly recommended from my friends
