I agree with this! First baby with epidural I had an episiotomy and tore really badly. This baby was a waterbirth, and even though I had previous tears (making tearing again more likely) and DS had a huge head and body, I only had a first degree tear! I was not expecting that, but it is awesome.
Wife to my supportive DH and WAHM to DD Nora (06/10), DS Emerson (07/12), and baby #5 (due 5/16) and my precious babies in heaven: Bennet (died 8/15 at 12 months) and Lucy (miscarried 7/15).
