By committing to enter labour without medicated pain relief your body will be naturally stimulated to release endorpines which are natural pain killers and mood lifting substances. By working with your own bodies endorphins and investigating natural pain relief options, your body will be more likely to labour effectively and birth without intervention such as forceps.

mahu Pure Massage Oil has been designed as the perfect labour massage oil to provide you with natural pain relief options.

How does massage help relieve pain?

  • Massage stimulates the body to release endorphins, which are natural pain-killing and mood-lifting substances. Endorphins are responsible for the "feel-good" factor; the "high" you feel after exercise, or a good laugh.
  • In labour, massage brings you close to the person who is caring for you: your midwife or your birth partner. The touch of someone who wants to help you can be very empowering when you're coping with contractions and are perhaps tired and frightened.
  • Massage is recommended by childbirth experts because it has been shown to ease pain and reduce anxiety in the first stage of labour (NCCWCH 2007: 94-5; Chang et al 2006; Chang et al 2002). It is also linked with shorter labours and a lower risk of postnatal depression (Simkin and O'Hara 2002).
mahu Pure Massage Oil 100ml has been developed in conjunction with New Zealand midwives who understand labour and birth, and the ingredients that are safe and healthy to use during that time. From this experience and in conjunction with skilled natural cosmetic chemists, mahu Pure Massage Oil was created for you!

mahu Pure Massage Oil contains Sunflower Seed Oil which has a pleasant smell and feel and is an excellent emollient, while also providing a protective barrier for the skin.

It contains essential oils designed to provide relief for pain caused by sore, tense muscular aches, sprains, backache and joint pain, muscular spasms, cramps and labour pain. It also works to relax the Central Nervous System, actively tackling nervous tension, stress related pain, shock and panic. It has a calming action on the heart, lowers high blood pressure and slows rapid heart beat. Perfect for your labour and birth!.

What type of massage is helpful to use mahu Pure massage Oil during your labour?
  • Shoulder massage- During labour, keep your shoulders relaxed, as this will help you to breathe rhythmically. Rhythmic breathing maximises the oxygen available to both you and your baby. Massage with mahu Pure Massage Oil can help you to relax your shoulders and breathe rhythmically. Your birth partner should place his hands on your shoulders and lean lightly on them. This will help you drop your shoulders if they are already hunched because you have become stressed. Next he can stroke down from your shoulders to your elbows, maintaining a rhythmical action and applying firm pressure.
  • Back massage- Many women feel contractions strongly in their lower back, so back massage can be very useful.
    In early labour, your partner can use the flat of his hand to stroke down the side of your spine, from shoulder to bottom with mahu Pure Massage Oil. He then can use the other hand to stroke down the other side of your spine, maintaining a rhythmical movement, with one hand constantly in contact with you. Make sure that he is massaging you using the whole of his hand and not just the heel.In advanced labour, your birth partner can use the heel of his hand to massage firmly over the base of your spine. He will need to apply quite a lot of pressure to counteract strong contractions. Or he can use his thumbs to make circles over the dimples in your bottom. Tell him what you find most helpful. Make sure he uses plenty of mahu Pure Massage Oil so there is no uncomfortable friction and the soothing essential oils contained in it will benefit you.
  • Hand massage - Even if you choose to have an epidural, ahand massage can be very soothing.
    Your birth partner can simply stroke each hand in turn with mahu Pure Massage Oil, first on the back, then on the palm, sweeping firmly down from your wrist to your fingertips. He can make small circles all over your palm, and gently pull each finger in turn to release the tension. This is a lovely way of being close to each other and making your labour special.
