Perineal Massage for Labor Preparation

Many women giving birth experience some sort of trauma to their perineal tissues. This is not surprising, considering that a 6-10 pound little person has spent minutes or hours pushing her or his way against a woman’s delicate innermost mucus membranes. If the baby descends too quickly or if the mother pushes too forcefully, it is possible that these tissues will not stretch adequately and they may tear.
