space through which the baby must pass.

delivery or to prevent spontaneous tearing of the perineum

What else can
Cold packs or compresses placed on the
perineum can help to relieve the worst of the discomfort
during the first few days after delivery. Special compresses
for the perineum may be provided by your hospital or
birthing center or may be bought from medical supply stores.
However, even a clean cloth soaked in a little lavender or
rose water and applied to the perineal area for a few
minutes will provide welcome relief.
'Sitz baths' or sitting in a clean tub
filled with cold or warm water will provide relief from pain
and reduce swelling. Adding salt to the water will also help
to prevent infection.
Use a squirt bottle to decrease
burning pain when urinating. Squirt your perineal area with
water while urinating as well as afterwards for a gentler
option than wiping.
