I've had 2 water births with no perineal support and no tears despite both babies being over 4kg and 36cm heads.
Didn't have any perineal support for my land birth either and had a graze but no tearing and he was only 3.6kg

The water itself should provide some support. Two water births here no tears or grazes.

As m'lady em said as well, those baths are deep ! It was enough of a struggle for the mw to get the Doppler on, I don't know how convenient providing extra support would be for either party.
Having perineal support honestly never crossed my mind though so that was a non issue and I chose the birth centre as it was the closest compromise with dh for a home birth so bringing dd up after she was born was what I wanted. I was more than happy for them to be hands off
