I just turned 34 weeks, and my midwife is recommending perenial message for the next several weeks until delivery. Anyone done it or have opinions on it? My husband and I just started, and, although it's weird and uncomfortable, I think it will really help me prepare for labor. I don't know if it will actually stretch things, but it certainly is getting me in the mental mindset of having to relax when I feel pressure there. We won't do any message during labor, but just in preparation. We're using olive oil right now, but I've heard Vitamin E is better. Any thoughts or experiences to share?
