In the months leading up to your delivery, there are too many first-time experiences playing in your head. And one of the most crucial ones is childbirth itself. Thanks to movies, women have increasingly become scared to go through this process. More than labor, what seems to scare women is the cuts and pain caused due to both a vaginal delivery as well as C-section. And especially in the case of vaginal delivery, where the sensitive perineum will go through a tear, and thereby stitches would be needed. It sounds like a painful experience. But, fret not, there is one thing that can help: Perineal massage.
A perineal massage can prepare you for delivery, physically. If you plan to opt for natural birth and your gynaecologist is fine with it too, then this massage can do wonders for you. Let us find out how.
