Approximately 3 weeks before delivery you should begin your EPI-NO exercises to increase the elasticity of your pelvic floor muscles. About 15 minutes per day. As in sport, the muscles will be strengthened and stretched.
Insert the EPI-NO balloon 2/3rds into the vagina. Gently contract and relax your muscles against the balloon, which provides resistance.
Slowly inflate the EPI-NO balloon to the point of stretching and comfort. Each day you will inflate and stretch more. There is no risk to your baby.
After the stretching phase relax your pelvic floor muscles and allow the inflated EPI-NO balloon to gently expel itself from the vagina. This will familiarise you with the sensation of delivering the baby's head.
