So I decided that this perineum business needed a go and I bought some massage gel for the purpose. I had a go yesterday and I can't bloody reach! Honestly, I am no where near a massage. I told lovely hubby about my problems and he laughed... he said 'theres a lot I'd do for you but I am not going DOWN THERE and massaging'. I don't blame him to be honest, I wouldn't want to massage him down there either.. So, looks like I'll be getting stiches (I can at least blame him for them after the birth). Anyone here actually managing to (or being arsed *excuse the pun*) do perineal massage???
