The Process Of Episiotomy Will Make You Cringe And Scare You In Your Dreams

Episiotomy is done at the second stage of the labor to quickly enlarge the vagina so that the baby can come out easily. It is a very sensitive surgery and is done with utmost care. It is only done when the vaginal opening is not sufficient for the baby to pass through. It is performed by the midwife and only when the situation turns critical.
