Reducing third and fourth degree perineal tears

Reducing third and fourth degree perineal tears information sheet. The information sheet aims to encourage shared decision making, informing women about their risk of a tear and what can be done to reduce their chance of experiencing a third or fourth degree tear. The information is designed to be given to women at an antenatal appointment between 30-36 weeks. It has been developed by a consumer working group with medical and midwifery input.
