I tore all the way when delivering my baby. Everyone else I talked to seemed to not tear at all or if they tore, their babies were 8, 9, 10 lbs. My baby was only 7 lbs. 1 oz. Why do you think I tore so bad with a small baby?Answer Question

Did you have an epidural?Increases risk of tearing by decreasing your ability to control pushing.
Did you have an episiotomy? The greatest risk factors for third-degree perineal tears during vaginal delivery are midline episiotomy forceps delivery and oxytocin use.
Did you "Purple Push" or push while your baby was crowning? Both of these increase your chances of tearing.
How long did you push? You are less likely to tear is you deliver slowly.
