Episiotomy vs Tearing – A Mom’s Real-Life Experience

Welcome and thank you for listening!

I recently interviewed a mother of two, who’s had two natural births, but two completely different experiences. We all know every birth is different, but this really is a beautiful story, in the midst of this pandemic. Her experience of having had an episiotomy with her first birth (which got badly infected and did not want to heal properly) left her terribly afraid to have a natural birth again. Her second birth was a healing experience, which left her with a tiny tear.
