Re: episiotomy vs tearing... which is "better"?

I had an episiotomy with my first. I couldnt sit on a soft surface or use the restroom without feeling like I was going to split apart. it was awefully painful but worth it since dd1 was in distress during pushing. With dd2 I tore a small amount but didnt have any pain after like I did with the episiotomy. Id say tear unless time is of the essence.
