Second episiotomy...


If by chance I were to need a second episiotomy, how is it performed? Will it be on the same side as last time? Any info would be great! Xx

Mine was done in the same spot with my second kid , it took longer to heal the second time around .They are more painfull then labor itself for me so I am dreading having to need one with this baby as well

I had an episiotomy both times. My first was midline so straight down and my second was done to an angle. I had a very hard time with healing after my second birth. Firstly my stitches slightly opened and then I ended up with granulation tissue and had to have it silver nitrate applied to it!

My first birth recovery was much easier. Good luck x
