Four years ago had my 1st child. It was a 10lb baby, difficult and prolonged birth and I suffered a 3rd degree tear. While the tear healed I had a lot of granulation tissue which I had surgically removed 5 months later. It had really put me off having any more kids but I've made the decision and now I'm expecting my second child. I am contemplating having an elective C-section, not what I really want to have but I just don't want a repeat of 4 years ago. Has anyone had a vaginal birth after 3rd degree tear? Did you tear again?
