Did you do perineal massage before having your baby?

When did you start?
How often did you do it?
Did you use olive oil?
Do you think that you benefited from it?

Thanks!

  • No. By dr. said not to. It is more likely to cause infection.

    I'm pretty sure that as long as you avoid the urethral area that you will also avoid infection.
