Answer: Hi, This time around you will be very closely watched and more than likely you will not expereince as bad a tear. You should be trying to gently stretch your perineum now so that you are well prepared for the birth. Talk to your midwife about this and the birth so that you can make an informed decision. Best wishes, Alex.
