As a VBA3C mom, I knew the responsibility for what was needed so my midwife was equipped to effectively facilitate a Home-birth for us was partially mine. For me that meant making sure I had a great quality Birthing Oil.
I had this check list:
· What If I tore?
· What if It were 2-3rd degree or episiotomy and needed stitches?
I began to research what herbs help assist in healing the Perineum should a tear or episiotomy occur. As a result of many late nights of research, these were the best herbs recommended. Of course, it should be noted that several factors contribute to lowering chances of tearing during delivery, such as:
· pushing too fast
· health care provider providing perineum support (also called hands on approach)
