I've heard that there is some kind of oil you should put on your perineum for some time before delivering and it will keep you from tearing during delivery. Has anyone else heard this and do you know what type of oil it is? Thanks in advance

I would just use regular Vaseline

go to www.childbirth.org/articles/ma__sage.html It will tell you exaclty how to do it & NOT to use petroleum based oils, but water based ones like K-Y.

I think the hospitals actually use olive oil. I know it sounds weird, but that is what they showed in the video and said in our childbirth ed cla__s.
