At my consultants appointment today, the consultant spoke to me about the "reconstructive surgery" (ie designer vagina) I had after I had C and said that I could still have a vaginal delivery however could ask for an experienced midwife and a hands on labour. The first is clear to me but what the hell is a hands on labour???
Can any one shed any light??

Presume one were the Mw will be with you the whole time rather than leaving you to it?

Is it where the MW supports your perineum while you push? I think some believe it helps prevent tearing.

Saisi.....I think you have it xx That would make sense in my situation.

I had that, still managed to get a 2nd degree tear, although I didn't feel it!

Yep Saisi's right, it's a midwife supporting your perineum as the head crowns xx
