    For the ladies who had episiotomies, was there any scarring later on after the wound healed? I tore and still have horrible scarring that is really irritating.

    I've really never heard of a case where an episiotomy was helpful when a baby is in distress--episiotomies are done more for the mother than the baby--usually if the baby is in distress it's from some other reason (lodged in the birth canal and not coming down)--a mere bit of skin isn't going to really hold the baby back, I don't think.

    This is incorrect, when a baby is in distress in the late pushing stage an episiotomy can speed up delivery by 5-15 minutes, it is one of the medical reasons for doing an episiotomy,

    I think it all depends thanka2...I tore both times and have no scarring whatsoever and then you will have women who do...perhaps just luck of the draw.
