Alright ladies, this needs to be talked about…
First-time moms have a 95% chance of tearing during birth? Experts say that this is because your tissue down there is less flexible.
But, tearing can actually be prevented! Ladies, you have more control over our birth than you are aware of! You just need to take the matter into your own hands, pun intended!
Research shows that doing perineal massage before birth reduces the risk of third- and fourth-degree tears.
So, how do you do perform a perimassage? It’s pretty easy!
- Starting at your 34th week of pregnancy, put a small amount of our Ardo Natal Perimassage on your fingertips.
- Then slowly slide your thumbs down to your perineum.
- Gently push down on your perineum skin (in the direction of your chocolate star flower) with your thumbs
- Then gently stretch the skin outwards, and repeat!
With daily massages, you can help prepare yourself for the birth you’ve been envisioning.
