Amazingly, it turns out that episiotomies do more harm than good!!

The findings, published in the May 4 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, appear to reverse long-standing beliefs that the procedure is preferred to prevent spontaneous tearing and also helps women recover better after giving birth. The review found that episiotomies had no effect on incontinence, pelvic floor strength or sexual function. Women who had the procedure waited longer to resume sex after childbirth. And their first post-birth intercourse caused them more pain, according to an Associated Press report on the study.
well, at least the medical establishment has finally noticed

nothing more to say I guess :
