My wife gave birth a few weeks ago and they had to cut her (Episiotomy) to take our daughter out with forceps. She let me look at it today because she is concerned with how it looks. I had her lay on the bed and you can literally see inside her vagina now and it is gaping pretty wide (sorry to be so graphic). I know my mother had this done and she said she returned to normal and for my wife not to worry, but she seems pretty distraught. I don't know what to tell her or what to say, but I keep reassuring her it will be fine. She is still bleeding and wearing the pads, etc, if that helps tell you where she is currently at. Anyone on here go through this? I am trying to find out more online to help my wife feel better, but don't know where to start though.
