Pain relief with Minor Surgery (Epsiotomy)

What is epsiotomy

This is a minor procedure that involves a surgical incision in the perineum to enlarge the vaginal opening before the birth of the baby's head, to ease a normal vaginal delivery.  There are two types of epsiotomies: the median and the mediolateral. The median incision is made at the back towards the rectum and the mediolateral one slants away from the rectum.

What are the benefits of epsiotomy

An epsiotomy can considerably shorten the time consuming, painful and pushing stage of labour. It prevents injury to the muscles of the vagina and perineum and protects the foetal head from being compressed through a smaller opening. It is especially beneficial in the case of prolonged labour, exhaustion and foetal distress. Moreover, it is certainly better to have a proper incision made rather than suffering a vaginal laceration.
