Vaginal Tearing In Childbirth: Conversations With Two Experts

Did you know that approximately 90% of first-time vaginal births will experience some form of vaginal or perineal tear or episiotomy (an intentional incision made in the perineal area during birth)?

The lack of open discussion around tearing during childbirth can result in a traumatic delivery and recovery experience. Below, we share two conversations Nyssa's Mia Clarke had about the topic. One with OB-GYN Dr. Laura Laursen covers the realities of tearing, and another, with Birth Therapies' founder Miranda Watling, delves into trauma recovery. 


Vaginal Tearing in Childbirth: Physical Realities 

Mia speaks to Dr. Laura Laursen, an OB-GYN with Rush University Medical Center in Chicago about the realities of vaginal and perineal tearing in childbirth.

Dr. Laursen provides straightforward information about the anatomical impact of tearing and strategies to help minimize tearing and encourage a positive physically recovery.

 


Emotional Recovery From Birth Trauma

Mia speaks with Magdalena Watling of Birth Therapies about strategies and approaches to overcoming emotions such as guilt, shame, anger and sadness after experiencing a difficult birth, with a focus on emotional recovery following vaginal and perineal tears.
