What Do The Experts Say?

The reason for my carrying out this survey was due to there not being very much publicly available information on recurrence rates.

However, this is the limited information that I’ve found out in my research:

Across the country, 4% of woman with unassisted deliveries suffered a 3rd or 4th degree tear in their first labour in 2011-12. Sucks to be us. In their second labour this figure drops to 1.4%.

Across the country, 6.9% of woman with assisted deliveries suffered a 3rd or 4th degree tear in their first labour in 2011-12. In their second labour this figure drops to 2.5%.
