An episiotomy is a cut made in the perineum of a pregnant woman to facilitate delivery of her baby. This is done less often today and only when the baby is in a difficult position, thereby preventing an straightforward birth. Dissolvable stitches are used to repair episiotomies. However, in some women tears can happen for many reasons and these can lead to bleeding, pain, increased risk of infection. The treatment of tears is the same as that for episiotomies.
