Will that be with or without an episiotomy?
I saw a questionably appealing offer on the midwife centre notice board today to join a scientific study.
‘In the event that your birth would have to end with vacuum extraction, you would enter a random draw for either a having an episiotomy or not…’
For expecting women who are scared senseless of having a forceps or vacuum extraction birth lead to severe vaginal tears (including me and I assume most women), is this a tempting offer?
A bit of excitement and an element of surprise in the middle of a chaotic delivery is exactly what you need, right? Let’s not all jump in and register at once.
Scientific studies in all honor, but I will probably prefer the staff to make the right decisions during my delivery and not decided by a random draw. But maybe that’s just me.
