Usually pressure episiotomy is when they cut it while the baby's head is pressed hard against the perineum. The pressure reduces the blood flow and sensation in the area so you don't feel the cut. Sounds like it sure beat tearing upwards! I think one of the very few situations where an episiotomy really is called for.
