You have a higher chance of tearing or ending up with another episiotomy,
I would suggest researching positions etc to help prevent this and perhaps talk to your doctor about it and consider using an epi no.

I had an episiotomy with #1, and managed to escape with nothing more then a tiny graze with #2. Both 7'3.
And although i had every intention when i fell pregnant again of perineal massage, applying oil etc i never did.

I had a really nasty tear with #1 and chose to birth #2 in water and had just a tiny graze with no stitched required it actually did not hurt in the slightest and I do remember the agony of #1 crowning (vacuum) quite vividly still lol
I can't recommend water highly enough. And breathing baby out

This is a thread from a few mths ago but i will reply.
I got a 3rd deg episiotomy and a 4th degree tear with DS1. With DS2 i refused the episiotomy (as i believe it was the cause of my extensive tearing) i tore 2nd degree (8stitches) with him (due to compound presentation, hand on mouth, palm out). The tear only followed 1cm of my previous scarring.

I had an epi with #1
With #2 I had a tear in a different spot, only 2nd degree and it only required a few stitches. Oh and DD was 4.2kg and came out with her hand on the side of her head so I think it turned out ok.
