It's a fairly controversial thing. Some studies are showing it actually makes it worse as it tightens that area rather than loosens it. I wouldn't consider a midwife "not good" because she didn't recommend it.
I have never done it, so I'm not sure what oils would or wouldn't be good...

My midwives have all favored perineal support during labor to prenatal massage. Just for what it's worth. If you think it will help, then by all means go ahead!!
