    Just wondered if any of you have heard, or had any experience of this?

    http://www.epi-no.co.uk/default.asp

    My boss's wife gave birth a couple of weeks ago to an 8lb 11oz baby and didn't even tear (she even refused gas and air and breathed through it :shock: ). She puts the easy birth down to her using the Epi-No.

    I haven't spoken to her, just my boss mentioned it. I didn;t really question further because I didn;t really fancy a conversation about perineal massage with my male boss :oops: :lol:

    I had a really bad delivery with my first and ended up with a 3 way episiotomy and a shoulder dystocia. I need to wait til 36 weeks to see if they will be recommending a c-section, but I'd rather delivery naturally and a bit easier this time.

    They really do rip off pregnant women when they can get away with it.

    psssf... I think an 8lb9 baby does exactly the same job tbh... :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: besides, I'm not wasting all that money on something thats likely not to arrive by post until my 6 week post natal check... :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:
