had a c section for number 4 and dd was 18 months, dh took month off work and did everything as i couldn't especially as got an infection afterwards in the wound. I had to go to theatre to be stitched up after dc 3 due to 4th degree tear, but was told it would not mean i couldn't have a natural delivery for the next one - it was his size that meant i had a c section and dd having shoulder dystocia largly due to her size hence the tear.
lots of people have torn and then gone on to having a good birth with no tears.
