I Have been reading threads on this topic for ages. I am currently Due with number two, and just need some reassurance. Doctors and Midwives don't seem to give me clear answers.
I had a 3rd degree tear 2 years ago after a 3 failed vacuums and a forceps delivery. The recovery was painful but I felt ok after about 3 weeks. I still get some pain down below at times. I have alot of scar tissue.
I am considering having a c section as the thought of giving birth again really scares me and the fact I have so much damage down below.
Would just like to know from women who have gone on to have c sections after bad tears how did u find u the recovery? which one was better ? was the c section more painful? or the tear?
I hear different stories cos some women have had great natural biths so a c section to them is traumatic. I just want to pick the lesser of the two evils....lol smile
Thanks for reading xxxx
