If you had an episiotomy with your first, did you with your others as well?


I had one with my first and not with my 2nd. I'm pregnant with my 3rd. I'm freaking out I'll have to with this one. Just looking at the odds, I guess.

It's my understanding that it's your choice. If you don't want one, don't let them. Kwim?

i did with my second, and yes with my third. my third was a lo tmore complicated and i was painfully ripped open by the doctor to get the baby out. no other choice.

I had at least 12 stitches. My MIL stopped counting.. not sure why she was to begin wtih.... My 2nd I had one stitch from her nail, no tear or cut.
