About the Cover: Robust evidence has shown that the outcomes of perineal trauma are associated with diverse obstetric interventions including episiotomy, operative delivery, pushing methods, and prolonged expulsive period. In the absence of obstetric anal sphincter injuries, although perineal pain during the early postnatal period is prevalent, the intensity is slight. Moreover, the use of episiotomy is associated with more perineal pain than other perineal trauma.  (See page 69).
