I had a major episiotomy when my son was born- his heart rate was dropping and they needed to get him out fast. Does that mean that it's unavoidable the second time around? That was one of the most horrible parts of the recovery for me, and I really wish that it wouldn't be necessary this time around, but I even tear and bleed sometimes from having sex where I had the episiotomy, so I'm guessing there's no way the skin will stretch enough for a baby. Does anyone have any advice on the subject?
