Show Notes

Awareness of perineal massage is on the rise. In this episode, I sit down with Meghan MacKenzie, a registered midwife from Community Midwives in Kelowna BC to discuss:

  • What the research says about perineal massage
  • The goals of perineal massage
  • How I teach perineal massage (as a physiotherapist)
  • The benefits of learning more about your perineum
  • Ways that your care provider can help you relax your perineum during birth
  • The benefits of perineal massage postpartum

Our goal for this episode is to:
Help you feel informed about your options for birth preparation.
