A nourishing, strengthening blend for perineal massage for before and after birth.
Developed to tone the delicate perineal area in preparation for childbirth this concentrated blend of reparative oils encourages elasticity as it nourishes, moisturises, strengthens and softens your skin. Wonderful to use on your belly and stretch mark prone areas too! Because it is formulated for pregnant women it is fragrance free - if you’d like to add some sweetness, we recommend Neroli essential oil.
Perineal massage prepares the soft tissue around your birth canal for the birth of your baby; it can shorten the second stage of labour and help prevent tears. We recommend beginning perineal massage at 34 weeks, performing it 2 to 3 times per week up until labour. Postpartum, perineal massage supports the healing of tears and episiotomy scars. To repair wounds, your body generates scar tissue which is comprised of irregular lines of collagen and fibrin that don’t stretch easily. With activities such as intercourse, this new tissue can feel like it is tearing when in fact it is just stretching. Postpartum perineal massage encourages elasticity in the scar tissue, easing pain and discomfort. We suggest perineal massage begin at 6 weeks postpartum, and be done 2 to 3 times per week until the tissues have healed and softened.
Nourishing, anti-inflammatory, improves skin elasticity.
