Hi ladies! I apologize if there are previous posts about this topic- I tried the search feature, but it would not limit the responses to the Natural Birth board (even though I had selected it in the drop down menu), perhaps I'm doing something wrong
In any case, I am currently pregnant with my first baby, and am strongly considering a natural birth. One major concern I have is being un-medicated when/if I tear. I realize that, even without tearing, the pain will be intense, but being able to feel my lady parts tear may be a deal breaker.
Does anyone have experience if a previous natural birth with tearing? What was your experience like with the tear and stitches?
I appreciate your time!
