How to use: Love Boo Perineum Massage Oil is probably one of our most celebrated products! Mums and midwives often tell us that they believe regular massage of the perineal area helped them avoid stitches during birth. To use, massage from week 34 onwards (or when your midwife recommends), massage around the perineum. Safe for use as a massage oil when pregnant and nursing. For more information on perineal massage, check out our video with Jo the midwife. Did you know…
