this one is for any mummies out there that have previously suffered a 4th degree tear.
i did 7 years ago but have recently discovered I'm pregnant again and due in July.
Im petrified at the thought of a c section and I would much prefer a vaginal delivery again. I did not have any complications afterwards and everything healed as it should have and nothing has shown cause for concern since. I was just told back then that I would be advised to have a c section if I had any future pregnancies.
i still to this day do not know what caused the tear.
i laboured for 4 hours start to finish and pushed for all of 15 minutes and from what I can remember my son was back to back. I may be wrong ... I was very tired!!
now I would like to know if anyone has had a vaginal delivery after this sort of tear and if so how well did it go?
just need help putting my mind at ease and for someone to say I will be fine! I'm freakin out here!!!
thankyou gals xxxx
