I would like to welcome you to the Epi-no website where you will find more information regarding our brilliant innovative birthing trainer available in the UK, designed to compliment perineal massage.
It is becoming increasingly commonplace nowadays for midwives and ante-natal teachers to recommend the practice of perineal massage to pregnant mothers, with studies suggesting that it should be done daily from around 34 weeks to get the most positive effect.
There is a product on the market in the UK called Epi-no, which can facilitate this massage and provide a controlled, uniformed and gradual progressive perineal stretch. This will help reduce the risk of perineal trauma such as grazing and tearing or the need for an episiotomy. Additionally it can also be used after the birth to regenerate the strength and tone of the pelvic floor muscles.
The Epi-No does not need to be used until week 37.
