Perineal Massage to Help Avoid An Episiotomy
I'm already in my 37th weeks of pregnancy. I might give birth anytime soon. Hopefully I will give birth on my hubby's off day and my sisters will be around to look after Arsyad during my delivery. I don't know what to expect this time around, just pray for the best.
Btw, I did read about this perineal massage somewhere to avoid an episiotomy during delivery. Means no tear and no stitches. We have to do it on 34th weeks of pregnancy and above about 1 or 2 times a week. I don't know whether it works or not but research shows that it does work, with a condition we listen carefully to the midwife and doctor on when to push and when stop pushing.
Maybe you can give it a try and see whether it works on you or not. Here is the guide on how to do it. Good luck~
