I have no doubt that if those steps weren't taken I would have had a c-section instead. In fact, I heard alot of comments from nurses that they couldn't believe I didn't end up with a c-section.

Good Luck!
I agree with this. If you are tearing into your urethra you definitely will want an episiotomy. Chances are you won't tear upwards but I'd encourage a flexible mindset.
