Answer: How To Do Perineal Massage Once you reach week 34, you could include perineal massage as part of your preparations for childbirth. There is no conclusive evidence on how many times a week you should massage your perineum to reduce tearing during birth. One study found that the women who massaged their perineum most frequently had the best outcomes - Step By Step Guide To Perineal Massage Step 1: Find a quiet, private place to lie down. Use the pillows to support your back so that you are in a semi-upright position. You may like to turn off the lights, and play some calming music to help you feel relaxed. Step 2: Apply oil or lubricant to your fingers, thumbs and perineum. The lubrication should prevent discomfort. Step 3: Next, insert two fingers around 3-4cm deep into your vagina. Gently, but firmly, apply pressure towards your anus. At the same time, gently pull your two fingers apart so that your perineum is being stretched both downwards and outwards. Keep applying pressure until you feel a slight tingling sensation, this is your perineum being gently stretched. This should not hurt, and you should not notice any burning. Step 4: Imagine that your vaginal opening is a clock face. Next, pull your two fingers down to 6, then stretch them outwards and upwards towards 3, applying pressure. Repeat this 20 or 30 times, then move to the other side and repeat the same motion 20 or 30 times from 6 to 9. Step 5: Stretch the perineum externally. Place two or three fingers from each hand in the centre of your perineum, and stretch the skin outwards towards your thighs. Step 6: Next, place your fingers in a V in the middle of your perineum and pull upwards towards your vaginal opening. Step 7: Finally, place your thumbs in the middle of your perineum, and push them apart in opposite directions. -
