I don’t think I’d be able to comfortable reach without this tool. Super useful to get past the bump and as a plus size person, it makes it so much easier. Happy with the purchase.
So far I am really loving the Perimom perineal massager. It is so easy to use and I can tell that it’s working. I am optimistic that this will be beneficial for my upcoming labor.
Bought the perimom to reduce the risk of tearing (going for vaginal water birth). My midwife supported the idea too. Still at 32 weeks so I've only used it a couple of times, but it makes self-massage very easy and it's not painful to do. Along with pelvic floor exercises, I'm fairly certain if there's any tearing, it'll be minimal.
I really wanted to tried perineal massage to support a natural birth, but the idea of doing it myself/with the partner felt daunting. This tool has completely changed that. It’s so easy and well designed. It’s made the experience fun and enjoyable, and my partner can still support me without the physical pressure. Honestly, just buy one! And some oil. The oil really helps. Good luck.
I’m a first time mom and decided to try perineal massage to prevent tearing. I’ve been using Perimom for a couple of weeks now and I highly recommend it. Super easy to use and the instructions are very simple to follow! This is a great tool for labor preparation!
