vaginal massage?


Anyone try it? I have no idea how to do it its supposed to help with tearing. I can't even find any info on it that's helpful. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Dh is on board but he thinks he's supposed to put a fist in it and stretch...that's a no way loll so anyone have any advie photos videos links about this type of thing?

Hrm, haven't got a link sorry but you need to google "perineal massage". It only involves a thumb - no fists LOL.

I will be doing this as well as using the Epi-No pump to "prepare" my netherregions for intense stretching. I'm starting at 34 weeks

In UK mothercare do a little bottle of perineal gel to use with the massage to help soften your skin for stretching You can probably get similar stuff in the states too.

We did with my first, I think it worked cuz I just had a small tear that required no stitches! I had my DH just use some lube and kinda stretch with his fingers. I didn't start til later in my pregnancy though. Good luck!

Supposed to at least reduce the tears, makes it more likely to tear only a 1 instead of a 2 or 3(YAY!). I'll be doing it from 6 weeks before (although, how are we supposed to not get turned on?! ESPECIALLY if we get our DHs to do it! :O)

What's the issue with it having a "happy ending"?
