Additional Info

Directions:

Bosom Buddies: Add 2-3 drops of your selected oil to a bowl of water (hot or cold as you prefer) and mix to disperse. Wet two flannels in the solution and apply to the breasts for up to 30 minutes. Wash the breasts prior to a feed. Pure Bliss: Add 1-2 pipettes of Pure Bliss to a bowl of cold water. Disperse well & submerge a clean sanitary pad into the solution, squeeze the pad gently and place against the perineum for up to 30 minutes. The compress can be refreshed in the cold solution during this time to maintain the cold temperature. We also suggest laying on a towel in bed to prevent getting anything wet! Alternatively add 2-3 pipettes of Pure Bliss into a cold sitz bath/bidet. Cool it Mama: Gently mist over face and body with eyes closed, use as often as required. Down Below: Ensure you wash your hands before performing perineal massage. Find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed. A mirror may be helpful for you to visualise the area before you begin. It can be a good idea to make this a routine following your daily shower/bath. The warmth of the water will help with the blood supply and surrounding tissues to this area. Positioning can be how you feel you’re most comfortable; semi –sitting, one foot up on the toilet, bath or stool, squatting against a wall. 1. Place 1-2 drops of “Down Below” massage oil onto the outside of your perineum. Place your thumbs about 2 inches (5 cm] into your vagina. 2. Using your thumbs press downwards in the direction of your anus so that you can feel the stretch of the muscles surrounding the vagina and the vaginal tissues. Once you have this downward pressure, use your thumbs to sweep from side to side in a rhythmic “U” shape/hammock movement. Whilst massaging the perineum from the outside with your other fingers. When massaging, apply steady pressure towards the anus. This may tingle, but should not hurt! This will also help you to recognise the sensation when your baby is ready to be born. 3. Apply more oil to the outside of the perineum if required. 4. The perineum will possibly feel tight when you first start, but in time you will begin to feel a change and remember this should not hurt! 5. If your partner is performing the massage, just follow the same instructions but ask them to use their index fingers using the same “U” shape/ hammock motion. It is important to tell your partner how much pressure to apply. 6. Do not perform massage if you are suffering from Herpes, Vaginal thrush or other known infections. Please contact your midwife or GP if you suspect any of these infections.
