Episiotomy

If youíre planning on having a vaginal delivery, you may want to discuss the option of having an episiotomy with your doctor. An episiotomy is a procedure that helps prevent vaginal tissues from tearing as the baby leaves the vaginal opening. During an episiotomy, the doctor will make a small incision in the perineum, the area between the vagina and the anus, to give the baby more space to pass through.

After the baby is delivered, the incision is then stitched up and will gradually heal. Although, the procedure has raised some concerns about its usefulness, itís sometimes necessary to speed up the delivery, especially if the baby is distressed. So ask your doctor today if an episiotomy is right for you.
