I'm sorry if this is a really dumb question or if it has been covered before, but I am really interested to hear about the recovery of people who have had episiotomies (hope I spelled that right).
I have always said I would have an elective c-section but I really want to do what will be the least painful and stressful for me and am definitely open to VB.
I feel like I am choosing between a cut in the belly or a cut down there and would really like to hear good and bad recovery timeframes. There seems to be a lot on c-section recovery, but not much information on stitches on a bad tear or an epi.
I've only heard the stories on stitching after tears (albeit 3rd degree).
