I first heard about the EPI-NO training device during antenatal classes from several instructors, all recommending the use of the EPI-NO training device, saying how the mother had an easier birth, shortened 2nd stage of labor and how less likely they were to have a tear or episiotomy.

The EPI-NO itself was generally easy to use after a few sessions. Inserting the EPI-NO and inflating it helped me to feel that my body would be able to do its job during the birthing process. I felt I had made a good decision to use EPI-NO and was thrilled not to need stitches.
I successfully delivered my first child with no stitches or tears, after training with EPI-NO. During my second pregnancy I was advised by my doctor that I’d need a Caesarean as my baby was in the breech position. I began training with EPI-NO anyway, to keep up the strength in my pelvic floor. Days before scheduled Caesarean my baby turned, which meant I could have a natural delivery after all.
Thanks to EPI-NO, our daughter was delivered within only 2 pushes inside the delivery room. Sarah, our daughter, was very healthy and active right after birth. I had no cut, no tear and no need for any stitches whatsoever.
I wanted to write in praise of EPI-NO. I delivered a healthy full-term baby three days ago and my second stage lasted less than a minute with no tearing! This was my second birth and I had an episiotomy last time (and wasn’t very happy about that fact).
With following the instructions of EPI-NO to the letter, plus asking the midwife to support the perineum with hot washer and compression during delivery, I was able to produce a 4.1kg boy with no need for episiotomy or stitches. I was ecstatic and the midwives at Calvery hospital in Canberra were impressed.
I was able to stretch my perineum to 9.5cm over the 3 week period. I found EPI-NO easier than perineal massage which was too difficult around my bump. EPI-NO gave me confidence that I would not tear, and I didn’t.
