In the readings from my MW the part on this is saying to start at 6wks before EDD. How many of you did this? Do you think it really helped you to not tear or did you tear anyways? I tore some with my 2nd and while it wasn't that bad I'd still love to avoid that this time around. I'm not sure how much massaging will help tho or if just having a HB with a MW who lets things happen naturally (and doesn't go using a vaccum) would be enough.  =)
