Hello Supermomies and Doctors,

I want to know about episiotomy, is this practiced in commonly in hospitals or do we need to ask for it proactively? my SIL has recently gone through a 3rd degree vaginal tear during her natural delivery and is still in recovering condition after 2 months. Pls advice.

Can you pls assist Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa

Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa can help ?

Nowadays, every doctor opt for episiotomy to avoid perineal tear.. i dont know why doctor didnt took episiotomy while delivery was going through.. yes tears leads to severe other problems... if you have doubt please discuss with your doctor too and make sure of episiotomy..

Yes sure Dr. thank you. 😊
