FAQs
Can I start perineal massage earlier/later than 35 weeks?
The research available is based on women who had undertaken perineal massage from 35 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.
I'm struggling with perineal massage, please help!
Our blog talks through how to do perineal massage, and we also have an animated video showing you how to do it too!
I have some left over, what else can I use it for?
Yes, it’s ideal for all-over body massage in pregnancy and during labour because of its calming and relaxing ingredients. You can also help to relieve nasal congestion by adding some to hot water or applying it to the skin under your nose.
Can I use Peri Prep your Bits for baby massage?
We wouldn't advise applying it to your baby's delicate skin until they are at least three months old.
It says "for external use only" can I still use it?
The area of skin that will stretch, called the perineum, is external. The oil isn't needed internally, as your vagina is naturally lubricated. You only need to apply Peri Prep Your Bits to those fingers that are massaging and stretching the skin of the perineum. Please refer to the instructions on the label on the bottle for guidance on how to do perineal massage click on our blog below on how to do it.
