How to do a Perineal Massage During Pregnancy?
Perineal massage during pregnancy is one of the most common things women ask for.
But what exactly does it mean?
A woman’s body needs time to recover from childbirth, so she may not feel like doing anything at all until after her baby is born.
So how can a woman enjoy herself while pregnant?
Well, there are several ways. Some women prefer to just lie down and relax with their legs spread wide open. Others will want to get up and move around. Still others will want to go into the bathtub or shower. There are many different methods of relaxation that can be done during pregnancy, but one method that is very popular among women is the use of a special type of massage oil called “Mama Bear”.
What Is Mama Bear Oil?
The name “Mama Bear” refers to the fact that the oil comes from a bear cub. This means that it is made of natural ingredients and is non-toxic. The oil is used in various types of massage oils, which can be applied directly to your skin or rubbed on top of other products such as lotions, creams, gels, etc. It works well because it contains essential fatty acids and fatty alcohols which have been shown to reduce inflammation and pain associated with labor pains. The oil comes in a small bottle, which can easily be carried in your purse or bag. The bottle has a small applicator tip which makes it easy to apply the oil exactly where you want it to go.
What Are The Benefits of Mama Bear Oil?
There are many different benefits to using Mama Bear oil during pregnancy. For one thing, it is the solution to all of your intimacy problems. You don’t want to have sexual contact during pregnancy because it could cause unnecessary stretching of the skin down there. Using Mama Bear oil as a form of foreplay can help to alleviate some of that pent up sexual energy without having to do anything you might later regret. In addition to this, Mama Bear oil can be used on damp skin after you get out of the shower. This will help to lock in the moisture and keep your skin from drying out. It can also be applied to problem areas, such as your stomach, lower back, and thighs. This will help to alleviate some of the aches and pains that you might experience.
How Should Mama Bear Oil Be Applied?
When it comes to Mama Bear oil, less is more. You really don’t need to use a lot of it to get the full effects. Simply apply a small amount of oil directly to your skin where it is needed. For intimate areas, apply about a dime-sized amount. Spread it around using your fingertips (or a massage tool) paying special attention to sore, stiff areas. You may feel a slight warming sensation, which means the oils are working. This will help you to relax and may even cause you to fall asleep. Mama Bear oil can also be applied all over your body. If you are trying to lose weight in certain areas, apply a small amount directly to the area of concern using the same technique described above.
Is Mama Bear Oil Safe?
When used as directed, Mama Bear oil is safe for all expectant mothers. It contains no harmful chemicals and has no side effects. In addition to this, it can also be applied in conjunction with other products such as lotions, creams, and gels. For best results, apply Mama Bear oil after you have applied these other products. This will help to lock in the moisture and further prevent drying or other problems.
Mama Bear Oil vs. Regular Massage Oil
While regular massage oils can help to reduce pain and stiffness in your muscles, Mama Bear oil has a few advantages. For one thing, it is easier to apply. The product comes in a bottle with a tip on it so you can easily apply it exactly where you want it to go. You also don’t need very much to achieve the desired results. Massage oils can be quite messy and often leave you feeling sticky and unclean.
Mama Bear oil is absorbed into the skin almost instantly, leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth. There is no smell or color to Mama Bear oil so it can be easily combined with other products such as lotions, creams, and gels without causing any color change.
Mama Bear Oil and Stretch Marks
The skin on and around your stomach is going through a lot of changes during pregnancy. While you can’t stop your skin from stretching, you can help to prevent unsightly stretch marks which often result in red, purple, or silver lines appearing on the surface of the skin. Mama Bear oil contains all natural herbs which tighten and soothe your skin. Applied daily, Mama Bear oil can help to keep your skin elastic and prevent the stretching that can cause unsightly stretch marks.
Mama Bear Oil for Nausea and Morning Sickness
There is no cure for nausea, but Mama Bear oil can help to alleviate some of the symptoms. Due to the soothing properties of Mama Bear oil, it acts as a relief for queasiness in the stomach. Simply apply a small amount underneath your nose. The scent is very strong and concentrated so it will immediately make you feel better. If you are suffering from severe nausea, apply a small amount to the skin and gently rub it in using small, clockwise circles.
This will help to stimulate pressure points that can help to relieve your symptoms.
Mama Bear Oil for Fatigue
We have all felt tired at some point in time, but if you are suffering from extreme fatigue and exhaustion it can have a significant impact on your ability to enjoy life. Mama Bear oil is packed with herbs such as Ginseng, Ginkgo, and Gotu Kola which are know to increase blood flow and oxygen to the brain. This helps to give you more energy as well as improving your over all well-being. If you suffer from extreme fatigue you should apply Mama Bear oil directly to the skin and rub it in. It is best to do this on your feet or hands, but you can also apply it to the back of your neck.
Mama Bear Oil for Edema
Overexposure to water can lead to excessive water retention in the lower limbs and elsewhere in the body. This condition is known as edema and it can be very uncomfortable and even cause your skin to become stretched out of shape. Mama Bear oil is particularly helpful for this type of swelling. To maximize the effects, you should wrap your feet or ankles in plastic wrap before applying Mama Bear oil to the skin. You can also apply it to your hands or arms if necessary.
Mama Bear Oil and Varicose Veins
Varicose veins are unsightly purple or red bulges that often appear on the surface of the skin. If they appear near the surface of the skin, you can directly apply Mama Bear oil to the area using circular motions. Alternatively, you can apply Mama Bear oil to your legs or ankles and wrap them in plastic wrap before going to bed. This will help to reduce the appearance of bulging veins.
