    Just before my little girl was born my midwife told me she was going to give me an episiotomy because it was likely I would tear because of her head position- the matron came in and said no way was she to give me an episiotomy and to leave me to tear because baby wasn't distressed & the recovery/repair work is easier and less painful! My midwife was newly qualified while matron was a older been there done it type- guess it differs from midwife/midwife.

    Thankyou, that answers what we didn't know, I would trust the matron due to experience, not that I wouldn't trust the midwife of course x

    Woow. Some of these stories are horrendous. I tore with my first. Didnt feel is as i was too busy pushing. No idea how many stitches i needed but i did feel myself getting stitched due to no having anesthetic kn the correct place. Stingy to pee and was uncomfortabke to sit but that was all. I was so scared with my second as everyone told me id definately tear cause i tore first time... didnt tear at all surprisingly!

    That gives me hope, it is one of my small anxieties that I will be tearing again but I hope that I have a similar outcome to you and don't tear at all, that would be magical! I remember the sitting down afterwards hell on Earth, so I am hoping this time it won't be so bad! xx

    I was the same ... Once I had healed I wouldn't know there had been a tear there, it just wasn't nice waiting for it to heal x

    You might be lucky like me - 1st degree tear & no stitches with DD1, no tearing at all with DD2! I think I have a very stretchy perineum haha x

    Ahh this is really good to know, judging by my growth scans this baby will be bigger than my daughter if they are accurate ... So there is hope then! :rofl: xxx

    I had an episiostomy and third degree tear ( tore through my muscles and right into my rectum) almost 6 months ago. Took about 4 weeks before i stopped taking pain relie . Number 2's were uncomfortable and couldn't even imagine having sex. Had aez for the first op when my daughter was 13 weeks. Was no where near as bad as i had imagined xxx

    I begged for them to do an episiotomy - cut totally from front to back as i had been in hosp being induced 4 days and awake for 36 hrs, i cried and cried till they brought a doctor and she cut me straight away!
    Was great and baby came next push!
    Think i was delirious first few days as dont really remember pain but the next 3 wks was horrendously painful! X

    I have to say... this horror of tearing makes me wish I wasn't a woman and didn't need to go through this... I think I'll get my husband to read it later!

    You won't feel any pain from the tear until the anesthesia wears out, so good luck with peeing and pooping. 😂
