The thought of vaginal tearing can make any woman cringe. And let’s not even think about episiotomies. Are there ways to avoid tearing? What’s the evidence behind perineal massage, kegels and squats? Will being told how to push make things worse? Rachel Reed tells us more about protecting your perineum during birth.
