Did you know lots of research shows that if you massage your perineum from 34 weeks in your pregnancy you can reduce the likelihood of tears and needing an episiotomy during labour? It also been shown to aid faster recovery from perineal trauma after birth. With this in mind, we've teamed up with Jan from Motherlylove to bring you a fantastic, natural product that has proven results.
Down Below® Perineum Massage Oil has been blended with natural oils chosen because the chemical structure is very similar to your skin's own oils. Jojoba together with avocado oil are easily absorbed by the skin, allowing your perineum to stretch more easily as your baby is born.
"The down below oil I used from about 34 weeks, I gave birth to a 8lb 1 baby with no tears no stitches and just a few grazes. I am sure it was down to the oil that I did not tear." Holly Kenningham
When to use Down Below® Perineum Massage oil
- Massage the oil into your perineum from 34 weeks in pregnancy.
- Caution: If you have a vaginal infection, contact your midwife or doctor and stop perineal massage until the infection has cleared.
A detailed 'how-to' flyer is included with each purchase of Down Below® Perineum Massage oil.
"I purchased the down below perineum oil for my second pregnancy after having to be cut during my first labour and having a large amount of stitches and was hoping the oils would prevent this from happening again as the recovery wasn’t exactly enjoyable. I was quite skeptical but thought anything is worth a go and it was incredible! I managed to get by with only a handful of stitches and a bit of grazing! I would recommend this to absolutely everyone I just wish I had know about it before! Thank you for making this it was an absolute life saver especially with having a newborn and a toddler to chase around after it just helped everything go a lot smoother and sped up the recovery process" Liz Jane Raper
