In this Maternity minute, we're going to talk about your body:

What's your perineum and why will it need care?

Your perineum is the space between your vaginal opening and your anus.

This area experiences a lot of pressure when pushing, can tear, or can be cut (episiotomy) during delivery. 

It's a sensitive area that you'll have lots of contact with when you go to the bathroom after your baby is born.
