Prenatal Perineal Massage:
the Origins' WayWHY in the world would I want to do that?
You can do it yourself, but most women report that it’s easier to have your partner help you. Have your partner start by using their index finger and apply gentle continuous downward pressure from 9 O'clock to 3 O'clock as shown in the diagram, for the first week. The second week they can use both their index and middle fingers and carefully begin increasing the pressure. Perineal massage should be uncomfortable but not painful. You both will notice that over time it becomes easier and more tolerable.
