My DS was 10 1/2 pounds when he was born and I didn't tear at all. However, my douhla and midwife massaged the area with vitamin E oils, and I'm assuming a lot of the reasoning for not tearing was due to that.
However - this time I want a water birth, and much more "hands off". So that has me worried that I will tear..
Is there anything I can do to prevent tears, other than using oils during labor? Did you tear? Please help calm my nerves- but be honest either way. lol.
