Re: If you had no pain meds and tore
I had a homebirth with my son and I had a severe 2nd degree tear. It was so bad that I had to go to the hospital for repair because my midwife didn't feel comfortable stitching that mess up. I had no idea I tore and I didn't even know that he was out to be honest. I was concentrating so much on pushing and trying to get him out that I had no idea and truly that was one of the last things on my mind.
