  • IT'S BEGINNING TO FEEL A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS! ⁠
⁠
...and here are 5 reasons to share the Goodwill with your Lady Garden too; ⁠
⁠
1) I've yet to meet a women who's written 'Stitches, Please!' in her birth plan. We're all quite keen to keep our delicate parts intact, right? According to the 2013 Cochrane Report there's a correlation between perineal massage and a decrease in the likelihood of tears, cuts & stitches. So wash your hands, get the non-scented oil out, and offer your perineum a soothing touch. ⁠
⁠
2) Get it on! Perineal massage often leads to sex, and sex means a hearty dose of prostaglandin to the cervix. Prostaglandin is found in semen & helps prep your cervix for birth. A little Afternoon Delight is always winner in late pregnancy. You'll feel flooded with oxytocin, the hormone which makes your uterus contract. ⁠
⁠
3) If you can reach your cervix, you might start to feel some changes yourself. Feeling your cervix soften & move forward can be HUGELY reassuring in those last days of pregnancy, when the pressure to crack on and have your baby increases. ⁠
⁠
4) Your Vagina & Cervix belong to YOU, but in pregnancy there's a sense that only 'The Professionals' can get hands on. This isn't true, Sister. Even in birth, you get to choose who touches you and when. ⁠
⁠
5) If you're not comfortable with touching your perineum now, you might not feel comfortable doing it when you're having your baby. Plenty of women don't feel their baby's head emerge because the idea that touching ourselves is shameful and only midwifes and medics are 'allowed' is pretty deep ⁠
