    Oil for Perineal Massage

    What is the best oil or lubricant to use for perineal massage? I've read about olive oil, almond oil, KY Jelly, etc. What do you ladies think?

    Thanks, Tracey - where did you find almond oil in HK? And did it actually work for you? My doctor suggested trying the massage instead of the epi-no.

    I actually ordered it off iHerb, get loads of my stuff off there, way cheaper than HK... If u want to do an order and have never done one before you can use my code JEJ737 for US$5 or US$10 off depending on how much u order...

    It's difficult to know if it actually worked as I have nothing to compare it to, but I think so... Everything went pretty well for me and in the end I only had a minor tear which the midwife said she saw was caused by my baby's fingernail...

    Life Flo Health, Pure Almond Oil, Skin Care, 16 fl oz (473 ml) - iHerb.com

    Was it this one? There are a bunch of extracts/soaps, etc., but not pure oils.

    Thanks, Tracey - I will order it today. Doctor says the baby has my husband's head, which is "huge." So...I might be in trouble. Fingers crossed I can figure out perineal massage and that it works!
