Pain control, episiotomy
In 2007, 443,000 episiotomies were performed. Because this procedure is used often, pain management after episiotomy is a priority for many women. Mothers may be reluctant to use pharmacological treatment due to the potential negative side effects to both mother and baby. Because of this concern, a number of researchers have investigated alternative methods of managing pain, particularly after episiotomies are performed. The purpose of this review is to determine the best evidence-based practice for controlling pain related to an episiotomy.
