Ardo Natal Perimassage is a natural perineum massage fluid that reduces the risk of perineal tears and episiotomies when used regularly from the 34th week of pregnancy onwards. Its highly effective nourishing combination of valuable oils promotes elasticity and loosens the tissue to support a natural and gentle vaginal birth.  

The combination of nourishing almond and wheat germ oil, together with perineal massage to improve circulation, penetrates the tissue deeply, increases its elasticity, and makes it softer and more resilient. Regular application reduces the risk of a perineal tear or episiotomy and reduces pain.

How to massage your perineum:

Perineal massage should be started in the 34th week of pregnancy.

Carry out the perineal massage at least three to four times a week for 10 to 15 minutes each time.

Wash your hands thoroughly before applying the fluid, then place enough of the fluid on your fingers and start massaging the perineal area.

Start with circular and stretching movements.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your doctor or midwife.

What is a perineum?

The perineum is the area of tissue between the opening of the vagina and the anus. It attaches to the muscles that support your reproductive organs, bowels, and bladder — the pelvic floor.

What can happen to the perineum during vaginal birth?

During birth, the area between the vagina and anus (the perineum) needs to stretch a lot and it might tear or need an episiotomy (surgical cut). Women who are giving vaginal birth for the first time are more likely to suffer from perineal tears. According to studies, more than 85% of women who have a vaginal birth have some kind of tear or episiotomy. An episiotomy is a non-routine surgical cut to the vaginal opening, which helps speed up delivery during difficult labour or helps to avoid tears.

Many women experience pain, discomfort and sexual difficulties for up to three months after a perineal tear or episiotomy.

What is perineal massage?

Perineal massage is the act of stretching and manipulating the perineal tissue using one or two fingers. Its goal is to prepare these tissues to stretch over your baby’s head and body during vaginal delivery. You can perform this massage at home by yourself or with the help of your partner.


Why should I do a perineal massage?

The natural perineum massage fluid promotes elasticity of the perineal tissue and is the ideal preparation for expectant mothers for a vaginal birth. Regular perineal massage with Ardo Natal Perimassage from the 34th week of pregnancy onwards reduces the risk of a perineal tears, episiotomies and pain during and after childbirth

Ardo Natal Perimassage contains a combination of nourishing almond and wheat germ oil. The almond oil penetrates deep into the tissue and cares for it while the wheat germ oil is rich in vitamin E and increases the elasticity of the tissue making it softer and more resilient.

When should I do it?

We recommend you massage your perineum during or after a bath or shower because the blood vessels in the area are dilated. This makes the perineum softer and more comfortable to touch.

When should you NOT do perineal massage?

Please do not use Ardo Natal Perimassage or any other perineum massage fluid if you think you may have thrush or any other vaginal infection and avoid it if your waters may have broken. Moreover, if you have any stitches or tears following the birth, wait until they have healed before beginning the massage. Please note that every pregnancy and mother and baby are different.
