Hi - i wonder if anyone can shed any light? I am considering having another child but am very much put off by my previous birth.

i suffered a 3rd degree tear and a slipped disc 2 days after giving birth.

Anyone else experienced the same very unfortunate circumstances and have you gone on to have natural births again without any or little complications.

i recently experienced an extruded disc (worse than slipped) after childbirth and was wondering the same thing. I'm scared b;c it hurts to hold my 2 month old. Forget picking up the car seat with him in it!

Can't help on the slipped dic I'm afraid but had a 3rd degree tear with DS and am expecting my second child in Feb and have been advised to have a CS. There have recently been two threads here on experiences after 3rd degree tears. Here are the links:
