FREE Webinar - Perineal Massage
Our live perineal massage webinar is 40 - 60 minutes of educational content from one of our midwives, with this collection you get access to this for FREE.
Did you know that doing perineal massage during pregnancy you can help reduce the chances of tearing or needing an episiotomy during your birth? Around 9 out of 10 first time mums and 7 out of 10 mums having subsequent births will have some type of damage to their perineum after a vaginal birth. The perineum is the skin and muscular area between your vagina and anus (your back passage) which stretches during childbirth.
You will receive an email giving you free access to join one of perineal massage webinars at a time that is convenient to you, to learn more about perineal massage and how to reduce the risk of tearing or an episiotomy during birth.
Our antenatal and postnatal classes are based on the latest evidence-based information, some of that information is only relevant to UK based maternity services and may not align with maternity services provided in other countries.
The research available is based on women who had undertaken perineal massage from 34 weeks of pregnancy, so there isn’t data on the effects of starting it sooner. If you want to start it sooner it would not be harmful, but equally it may not provide you with any extra benefits.
Our blog below talks through how to do perineal massage, and we also have an animated video showing you how to do it too
