 - Episiotomy quiz: everything you need to know about episiotomies
For those of you blissfully unaware of what 'episiotomy' involves (or indeed means) here's a little update... cross your legs first.

Episiotomy is a procedure where the skin between the vagina and the anus (the perineum) is cut, usually to facilitate child birth.

For those of us who have heard of it, or even experienced it, the mere mention of the word 'episiotomy' is enough to make us wince. But what exactly does this surgical procedure involve? And why is it resorted to in certain situations?

Take our fun and informative Episiotomy quiz to find out more and put your mind at rest!

(We bet you never thought you'd see 'fun' and 'episiotomy' in the same sentence!)
