Perineum Massage Oil
The Professional Series range, created by Bumpnbub x Lovekins is professionally formulated, dermatologically tested, vegan-friendly and endorsed by the Australian College of Midwives to support you on your antenatal and postpartum journey.
Our Perineum Massage Oil contains native Australian ingredients and is used when massaging your perineum, before your baby is born, to help improve skin elasticity which can reduce tearing during birth.
Our Perineum Massage Oil is used in the antenatal period for perineal massage. It is designed for sensitive areas containing natural Vitamin E and Argan Kernel oil to ensure you get the benefits of perineum massage in a comfortable way.
Directions for use:
Massage 1-2 times per week for up to 5 minutes, from week 34 of pregnancy (with medical clearance). Best used after a bath or warm compress to help with muscle relaxation.
1. Ensure hands are clean, the bladder is empty and medical clearance is obtained.
2. Get in a comfortable position. Put a few drops of oil on both thumbs or one thumb and pointer finger. Gently insert your fingers into the vagina, around 3-5 cm.
3. Gently apply downward pressure towards the anus as well as sideward pressure. A slight tingling and stretch sensation may occur. Continue for up to 5 minutes, slowly stretching the skin.
Always seek medical clearance prior to commencing perineal massage.
Perineal massage is recommended from week 34 of gestation if you are planning a vaginal birth with no contra indications.
Patch test before use. If irritation occurs, discontinue, and seek medical attention immediately. Store below 25°C.
