A natural massage oil to help you prepare for childbirth. Weleda's Perineum Massage oil uses sweet almond and vitamin E rich wheatgerm oil. Regular massage of your Perineum from the 34th week of pregnancy improves the skin elasticity of the perineum which will help you to avoid cuts and tears during childbirth.
How to use Weleda Perineum Massage Oil: Can be applied by yourself or with a partner. Massage 3-4 times a week for 5-10 minutes, from the 34th week of pregnancy. Best used after first bathing in warm water and making sure the bladder is empty. Settle into a relaxed, comfortable position. Moisten the thumb (or index finger if your partner is massaging) with Perineum Massage Oil and glide gently over the tissues, ensuring the massage is painless. Insert the finger into the vagina to around the second finger joint. Massage rhythmically with a light touch on the vaginal wall in a rotating movement, like the hand of a clock moving back and forth from 3 to 9. With each massage the tissues and muscles will feel more relaxed and softer, so that the length of the massage can be increased. Massage the perineum until a light tingling can be felt, then massage the tissue between the vagina and anus gently between the thumb and middle fingers. After massage excess oil can be removed by washing in warm water. If you have any concerns about perineal massage, please consult your midwife or doctor.
