Whenever i ask my mum about her delivery, the worst part was the episiotomy. She told me that after the delivery as a general process she was given episiotomy towards the anus(i think there are two types) After which somehow the tear extended and passing normal motions was so difficult that she had to sit on the cycle tyre. To make matters worse the stiches got infected. It was a nightmare. I thinks its the lack of awareness amoung patients and maybe lack of patience from the doctors side that causes a routine use of episiotomy.

This is quite a good article on how to avoid episiotomy. I had episiotomy when i had my baby(about 2 years ago). There was gaping of the wound and I had to have a couple more stitches after 7 days. Its worth trying methods to avoid episiotomy if it can be avoided.

Subject:  preventing episiotomy
I am pregnant for the first time and I have heard few cases of episiotomy from my relatives. I am really scared about it. I read that there are several types of episiotomy. I do not want to go for incision. I think I should go and buy some books on the exercises that one should do to avoid episiotomy. I know that labor is painful. Though anesthesia is given while doing episiotomy, there must be pain after its effect decreases. Can any one share some more experiences of episiotomy? I would like to hear your child birth and delivery experiences too. Thank you.

Subject:  perineal massage helps
Just before delivery my midwife gave me a perineal massage. My perineum muscles got good stretching and it helped to prevent an episiotomy. My sister underwent an episiotomy in her second pregnancy. During episiotomy you will be given local anesthetic so that you will not feel the pain while carrying out the process. But it is possible that you may have several side effects of it. There can be infection, irritation or bruises after delivery. The scar caused during episiotomy can take several months to heal and meanwhile if you try having sexual intercourse with your partner it can be very painful. So you have to abstain from sex for some period.

Subject:  try to avoid episiotomy
I delivered my daughter naturally. I suffered vaginal tear and had two stitches. My doctor suggested an episiotomy but I said I do not want to go for it until the case is too serious. I think I took right decision by avoiding episiotomy. My stitches took about five days to heal. I never faced any side effects due to my stitches. Now I am planning to have second child. This time I am going to plan my pregnancy better than previous one. I already have gone through your article. I think I will opt for Kegel exercise and perineal massage to prevent episiotomy. I am going to talk to my gynecologist in detail about pre natal care regime that I should follow and lot more.
