Possible To Prevent Tearing During Birth

Hi. I'm worried about tearing, and I read that massaging the perenium during pregnancy can prevent this from happening. Has anyone tried this, and di it work? I'm just wondering how I'm going to even reach my perenium when I'm 8 months pregnant!

Ive heard it works well, especially if you start a few weeks before birth, and during the birth with warm water infused with fresh ginger. START NOW! Also, lying on your side during the birth, or standing or squatting helps immensely. Lying on your back during delivery is the worst thing for your perenium, and causes the most tears.

p.s. dont use the ginger now, thats for the birth. you can do it now with some kind of safe KY jelly. OR hubby can do it for you. ;)
